Revolutionizing agribusiness in Ghana

Article - October 27, 2014

British entrepreneur's small agribusiness has grown to become one of the largest employers in Ghana, with 2,500-strong workforce and group turnover circa £60 million ($96.1 million) 

Seventeen years ago Anthony Pile was an unemployed 50-year-old, retired from the British army and fired from his last job because his big ideas were not well received.

Fast forward to the present day and Mr Pile proudly oversees his own company, Blue Skies, a revolutionary business with a group turnover of circa £60 million, which has breathed new life into agriculture in Ghana.

The company produces ‘fresh-cut fruits’ which are processed and packaged at source before being exported for sale
