WISHH has released a new video to share how WISHH’s strategic partners, like the winning father-daughter team at Yedent Agro Group in Ghana, are introducing new customers in emerging markets to U.S. soy. March is National Nutrition Month, and March 8 is International Women’s Day. Yedent Agro Group is the first to win the National Best Agro-Processor award from Ghana’s Ministry of Food and Agriculture. The company is a supply chain partner that markets soy-based foods to meet Ghana’s protein needs and also manufactures soy-based livestock feeds. To expand its ability to process U.S. soy flour, Yedent installed extrusion equipment from Iowa-based Insta-Pro International. WISHH has used USDA Foreign Agricultural Service funds to support its work with Yedent, including USDA Cochran Program funding allowed Soteria Aba Yedua Ntim-Adu to join WISHH for 2018 U.S.-based training. Both Soteria and her father, Samuel, attended WISHH’s Indiana Soybean Alliance-supported Protein Workshop in 2018. “To be in the food industry and to be in the nutrition industry is a great business opportunity,” Soteria says. “I have great pride in the fact that I’m a nutritionist and I’m a food scientist, and this work falls directly in line with my passion.”
