In a statement, the Embassy said the partnership with Select USA was aimed at ensuring the company would scale in the U.S market at a faster rate.

“This expansion to the U.S. market is particularly unique because it is grounded on a special partnership arrangement with a major American bread company to ensure scale and penetration of the U.S. market at a faster rate,” it wrote

Adding that “This initiative is part of Select USA, an American government program designed to help foreign products penetrate the U.S. market.”

Ghana’s Ambassador to the U.S, H.E. Dr. Barfuor Adjei-Barwuah who joined investors last year to tour the A1 factor said the embassy was happy about the progress and encouraged other young entrepreneurs to support the initiative.

“Last year, H.E. Dr. Barfuor Adjei-Barwuah toured the $3 million production site as well as retailers currently testing the A1 cake bread market in the tri-state area. As an Embassy, we are particularly proud of this emerging Ghanaian story and Godfried Obeng Boateng, the young CEO leading this initiative. We encourage Ghanaian investors and all investors alike to support this great initiative. Congratulations on your big step!” the statement ended.

A1 Bakery employs over 1000 of Ghanaians in Accra and Kumasi from factory to retail and this move is another feather in their cup.
