Press Release (ePRNews.com) - PHILADELPHIA - Dec 04, 2019 - Harvest Authentic Market will introduce over 100 products from Ghana – cosmetics, coffee, herbs, and other food products – to the U.S., with a test marketing campaign at select Shoprites in Philadelphia. On the first and second weekends in December, two of the ShopRite Supermarkets operated by the Brown family, will have product demonstrations of Harvest products. Customers will have the opportunity to sample beauty products and taste food products from Harvest.
Harvest is utilizing Ghana-based products as a gateway to Africa’s multitude of SMEs – small and medium-sized enterprises. “We are so excited to bring these African-made products to the U.S.” says King Global Ventures (KGV) founder and Harvest CEO King Ohene Obeng Asomaning. “I started Harvest Authentic Market out of the need to boost commerce, help eliminate poverty, and increase sustainability in Ghana. Agriculture is a leading contributor to Ghana’s GDP, and agro-industry is the backbone of not only Ghana, but all of Africa. We plan to execute this plan in other parts of Africa, once we’ve seen the growth and the positive outcomes in Ghana.”
Harvest Authentic Market product demonstrations will take place from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on December 7th and 8th at the ShopRite of Cheltenham, located on 2385 Cheltenham Avenue in Cheltenham, PA and on December 14th and 15th at the ShopRite of Island Avenue, located on 2957 Island Avenue in Philadelphia, PA.
