Enepa Ventures Limited

Enepa Ventures Limited has debunked media reports by Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD) which stated that the company under the management of its current Chief Executive, Joseph Boahen Aidoo purchased some 100,000 bags of an untested fertilizer called “Cocoa Nti” worth US$3.5 million using a forged scientific report in Morocco.

The company, in a press release, has stated emphatically that it has never supported any Scientist or Officer of the Cocoa Research Institute of Ghana (CRIG) to Mocorro, neither is Cocoa Nti, a fertilizer specially made for Cocoa in Ghana manufactured by OCP Limited of Morocco.

“We wish to state emphatically that Cocoa Nti, a fertilizer that has been specially formulated for cocoa in Ghana, went through the rigorous test processes of the Cocoa Research Institute of Ghana (CRIG) prior to its certificate by CRIG” the statement read.

According to the release, Cocoa Nti was tested and all legal processes and administrative formalities in COCOBOD was observed for the purpose of purchasing and distribution of products to cocoa farmers.

The company believes the media report was in a way tarnishing their high won reputation earned over the years as a leading fertilizer and agro-chemical distributor in the country.

Enepa Ventures Limited is pleading with the general public and its esteemed customers especially, the hard working cocoa farmers across the country to ignore the publication and treat it with all contempt.

Adding that, the company will continue to work with farmers and all stakeholders in the Agric Sector to support farmers with fertilizers and agro-chemicals of the highest grade and standard to boost the production of food and agricultural products in Ghana.

Enepa Ventures Limited is assuring all stakeholders that the company will continue to be guided by their core values of integrity, hard work, Innovation, Service to God and the Country at large.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Tuesday, 27th November, 2018.

Our attention has been drawn to an online story published on Ghanaweb dated Monday, 26th November 2018, sourced to Kessben FM concerning a Cocobod story falsely alleging that Cocobod had purchased “untested Fertilizer” covered by forged documents from Enepa Ventures Limited.

We hereby with this media release wish to state categorically that the substance of the story is FALSE AND UNTRUE and purely an orchestrated attempt to malign the company and its product Cocoa Nti and to bring the company’s high won reputation established over many years as a leading fertilizer and agro-chemicals distributor into disrepute, public ridicule and contempt.

We wish to state emphatically that Cocoa Nti, a fertilizer that has been specially formulated for cocoa in Ghana, went through the rigorous test processes of the Cocoa Research Institute of Ghana (CRIG) prior to its certification by CRIG.

Prior to, during and after the testing of Cocoa Nti, the Company has in addition subjected itself to all legal processes and administrative formalities in Cocoa board relating to the qualification of the company and its product Cocoa Nti for purchase and distribution to cocoa farmers.

We wish to set out the following facts to also correct the several other false statements in the story:

– Cocoa Nti is NOT manufactured in Morocco and the Company has never at anytime represented to anyone that the Product is manufactured in Morocco.

– Cocoa Nti is not manufactured or produced by OCP Limited of Morocco and the Company has never at anytime represented to anyone that the Product is or was manufactured by OCP Limited of Morocco

– The company has never sponsored any Scientist or Officer of CRIG or Cocoa Board to Morocco. Furthermore no Officer of Enepa Ventures Limited has ever travelled to Morocco with any Scientist or Officer of CRIG or Cocoa Board.

ENEPA VENTURES LIMITED therefore request that the general public and its esteemed customers especially the hard working cocoa farmers across the country should ignore the publication and treat it with all contempt.

Enepa Ventures will continue to work with farmers and all stakeholders in the Agric Sector to support farmers with fertilizers and agro-chemicals of the highest grade and standard to boost the production of food and agricultural products in Ghana.

We will continue to be guided by our core values of Integrity Hard Work, Innovation and Service to God and Country.
