Every Wednesday, on the campus at BlueCrest University College in Accra, the Center for Professional and Entrepreneurial Development hosts a live radio broadcast called CPED Radio.
Each week features a different topic from a rotation of four:
- Idea Garden – Participants in this CPED initiative are interviewed.
- Emerging Products – New products that serve the GH community and the people who are driving them.
- Famous Failures – Some great ideas that did not make it to market and why.
- Sector Specific – We pick specific sectors and invite thought leaders from them to give us insight.
This past Wednesday, we interviewed Seth Boafo from SK Fruity Bakery. Nana Ekua, our esteemed host, and I got to know how the company came to be, how it is doing now and where he hopes to be in the next few years.
Seth learned to love baking from his mother who taught Seth at a young age. This passion for good, healthy food has stuck with him and was a driving force in his idea to start a business. Even though he was a student at the University of Cape Coast majoring in Education, his natural entrepreneurial instincts took over. He saw the waste that farmers and producers suffer through and put his passion for baking into a solution to that problem. Make a product from the bi-products that are otherwise thrown out! This was the birth of SK Fruity Bakery. A nutritional, tasty solution to the problem of farming waste.
We wish Seth all the success as he brings his company from Cape Coast to Ghana, to Africa and to the world!
