Blue Skies Ghana announces voluntary redundancies

Blue Skies Ghana have announced a voluntary redundancy programme for staff at its fresh fruit processing facility near to Nsawam. The announcement comes as the business makes adjustments in response to a struggling market in the UK due to uncertainty over Brexit, and continuing challenges over raw material availability in Ghana.

While the redundancies will be seen as a setback for the company’s operations in Ghana, the business anticipates that in the long term it will be able to recover any losses as the company looks to diversify in to new product areas and enter new markets including in the Middle East and North America.

Blue Skies will also open a new facility in Benin in early 2020 which will help the business address raw material shortages and provide direct access to the growing market place in France.

Founder and Chairman, Anthony Pile said “We are reshaping our business in order to secure our long-term sustainability. While we understand this news will be difficult for all the people involved, we are doing it so that we can ensure the business is in good shape and continues to have a long-term future here in Ghana”

Applications for voluntary redundancy are now available and Blue Skies will make sure all affected staff are appropriately supported.
