In line with the positive feedbacks received from participants last year, Agrihouse Foundation is working relentlessly to improve the standards of the training programs while ensuring that all the trainings to be offered this year are as impactful and beneficial to the participants as it was in the previous editions.
This year the training programs will include:
- Pig Farming

- Fish Farming
- Shrimps and prawns farming
- Snail Farming
- Mushroom Farming
- Honey bee keeping and production
- Yoghurt making.
In the past three years, about two thousand, two hundred (2,200) participants have benefited from the Trade Show (LiPF). Available records also show that some three hundred and five (305), participants have gone on to establish their own livestock and poultry ventures, as individual and corporate bodies.
Since its inception in 2019, the 2-day event has facilitated networking, exhibitions and capacity-building sessions that have enabled participants to identify explore deeper ways to take advantage of opportunities in the animal agricultural sector.
The event has also facilitated direct and indirect market links between major corporate organizations, and startups, thus, contributing immensely to closing the gap that has long existed between the livestock farmers and other corporate organizations.
This year, the upcoming 4th edition is set to open in Accra on Friday, 6th May to Saturday, 7th May, 2022, at the Efua Sutherland Children’s Park, on the theme, “Speed Up – Build it Now.”
“This edition seeks to scale-up the enthusiasm built over the years, by motivating, empowering and building the capacity of stakeholders to help them sustain the gains and agri-focused projects they initiated during the pandemic,” Executive Director of Agrihouse Foundation, Alberta Nana Akyaa Akosa Sarpong, has noted.
In the past three years, the tradeshow has promoted extensive networking and dialoguing opportunities among livestock farmers in the country, as well as training and capacity building sessions in the areas of snail production, poultry, piggery, mushroom production, cattle and small ruminants rearing, and yogurt making.
The exhibitions aspects of the event has brought together over 1,300 participants and over 40 exhibitors from Ghana and countries like Nigeria, Ethiopia, Kenya, among others. Brands that have participated in the exhibitions include Jubaili, Ghana Poultry Project, Agricare, Tilly farms and Big Stars among others.
“Although LiPF focuses on Livestock production, its actors or stakeholders, the exhibition is also open for all other actors along the agriculture value chain. It is an intentional effort to promote other sectors of Agriculture as we boost the Livestock production of Ghana. Fundamentally, our goal is to boost Agriculture activities in the country and beyond,” Alberta has said.
Adding that, “This year the Exhibitions are going to be a very major and central part of the 2-day event. We recognize the need to continuously create market opportunities for agribusinesses, and partners working along the value chain. Therefore, we are reaching out to more organizations to register as Exhibitors, as the Team at Agrihouse works committedly on publicity and promotions towards a very fruitful and vibrant agribusiness exhibitions,”
