GTA Launches ‘Feast Ghana’ to Celebrate Culinary Diversity

Launch of Feast Ghana

A culinary event to promote local foods and showcase Ghana’s cultural richness.

The Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA), in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture (MOTAC), is set to launch ‘Feast Ghana,’ a culinary event aimed at celebrating Ghana’s diverse culinary heritage. The event, scheduled for Wednesday, April 17, will also be in collaboration with the Ministry of Food and Agriculture, the Asanteman Queenmothers Association, and the Public Service Workers Union of the Trades Union Congress (PSWU of TUC).

The inaugural edition of ‘Feast Ghana’ will celebrate Ghana’s rich culinary heritage under the theme “Flavours of Ghana, celebrating Ghana’s cultural diversity through food.” It is part of the Ghana Cares Obatanpa project, which aims to help resuscitate the Tourism and Hospitality sector.

The launch event will also feature the second edition of the “Rep your Region” program organized by the Ladies Club of GTA. Following the launch, ‘Feast Ghana’ will travel to the Ashanti Region on April 22, in partnership with the Asanteman Queenmothers Association, to honor the 25th anniversary of Otumfuo Osei Tutu II. This extension of the event highlights the region’s cultural significance and culinary contributions.

Mr. Akwasi Agyeman, Chief Executive Officer of GTA, expressed excitement about ‘Feast Ghana,’ stating that it represents a unique opportunity to showcase the vibrant culinary richness of Ghana and celebrate the unity and diversity that food embodies in Ghanaian culture. The program aligns with the “See Ghana, Eat Ghana, Wear Ghana, and Feel Ghana” campaign launched by GTA a few years ago.

The grand celebration of ‘Feast Ghana’ will be held on May Day at the Accra International Conference Center, in collaboration with the PSWU of TUC.
