ABOUT US

WHAT WE

STAND FOR

The Livestock and Fisheries Chamber is the umbrella body for all individuals, institutions, organizations and businesses operating within the livestock, aquaculture and fisheries sectors. We are honored to lead the agenda for sustainable livestock and fisheries input supply, production, processing and distribution.

It is our greatest desire to undertake extensive consultation and membership dialogue to enable us critically assess the challenges and bottle necks confronting our members in particular and the respective sectors in general. As a body, we shall design and execute targeted solutions with support from our in-house professionals, local and international partners, specialists, consultants and state agencies.

The positive impact of our efforts coupled with the realities that confront the livestock and fisheries sectors is proof that we require a strong, resilient and independent front to drive the needed change.

A particular area of interest is the food distribution system in Ghana. This requires urgent attention due to its impact on the overall well-being of her citizens. The problem of unwholesome meat and fish products in the market, bad management practice by producers, lack of financial literacy, lack of self-compliance, no regard to animal welfare and handling regulation, non-adherence to safety protocols, non-enforcement of laws, consumption of imported meat and fish products, engaging in farming as a way of life not as a business etc. Must be eliminated and put in our past.

Specialists Forum

The Chamber has established a specialist forum to facilitate easy access to information, activities and programs. Users will have access to real time feedback from specialist who operate across the value chain. The Chamber has also established a resource center to assist members and the general public with first-hand information about current situations in the livestock and fisheries sectors. Both the specialist forum and resource center will encourage B2B engagements. They can be accessed on the chamber website and social media portals.

Together we shall confront our fears, challenges and join hands to standardize the operations in the livestock and fisheries sectors for sustainable growth and development.

It is important to note that solutions will aligned with the goals of relevant state agencies such as the Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA), the Ministry of Fisheries and Aquaculture Development (MoFAD) and with the objective to support the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals

WHO

WE ARE

After over four years of research and development of initiatives and projects, The Livestock and Fisheries Chamber (LFC) was registered under the 1963 company’s code, to bridge the gaps and loosen bottlenecks in the Livestock and Fisheries sectors in particular and agriculture in general. 

The LFC has distinguished, eminent and experienced persons as Advisory board members and a parallel advisory body (Executive Committee) that brainstorm on strategy and business models to guarantee the Chambers continuous growth and sustainability.

The concept of the Chamber as approved by the board, does not have profit orientation. Its posture is not for profit. However, where revenue is generated through the many projects and initiatives, it will be channeled into the sustainability of the entity and any surplus will be directed in the development of new projects, research and development. All initiatives developed by the chamber, that has potential for profit making will be outsourced or established as a separate business entity with its own identity and owners so that it may be run efficiently as a business. The chamber therefore may benefit from the business profit by way of royalties and annual approval seal fees.

Our primary roles are Policy advocacy, Research & Development, Training and Value Chain management. We complement the efforts of state institutions, stakeholders and regulators to enforce standards, good industry practices, sensitize consumers, facilitate and support the development and growth of the livestock and fisheries industries.
