Ghana Yam Producers and Exporters Association (GYPEA)

With a Vision of becoming the leading source of premium quality yam products with global penetration and contribution to an improved Ghanaian economy and livelihoods,the Ghana Yam Producers and Exporters Association was incorporated under the Ghana Company’s Code, 1963 Act 179 on the 2nd of June 1987. The Association’s objectives are to promote the production and exportation of good quality and certified yams from Ghana, and to assist members to adopt proper methods of presentation of their products to the outside world. The Association also plays an advocacy role in lobbying to influence government policy in the yam industry.

The Association currently practices the Group Marketing Concept whereby members export under the banner of the Association with particular emphasis on FOOD SAFETY and TRACEABILITY. Strategically positioned in the middle of the value chain, it controls the movement of GLOBALGAP certified yams from the farm gate to foreign markets.

The Mission of the Association is to provide guaranteed markets for yam farmers and enhance the performance of yam exporters.
