MW Brands Increases Tuna Output In Ghana Ghana, December 13, 12

Ghana’s largest tuna processor, Pioneer Food Cannery, will increase its production by 6%, or an additional 5,000 tons, in two years, says the company’s general manager.
The cannery is currently operating at 47% capacity and processing 50,000 tons of raw tuna each year. The company plans to raise its volume of operations to 53%, or 55,000 tons, by 2015. This production increase is expected to create 400-500 more jobs in Tema, Ghana, where the factory already employs about 1,300 workers.

Pioneer Food Cannery (PFC) is one of four plants owned by MW Brands, a subsidiary of the world’s largest canned tuna producer, Thai Union. On a daily basis, it yields 800,000 cans of tuna and 20 tons of frozen tuna loins for both private label and major European brands such as John West in the UK and Germany, Petit Navire in France, and Mareblu in Italy.
PFC has a new fishmeal plant that converts fish waste into meal for the country’s livestock and poultry industry. It also has an oil extraction unit that removes Omega 3 from the eyes of tuna fish and a waste water treatment site that is currently under construction.
