At the beginning, there was one vision: the development and marketing of fresh, naturally ripened fruit from Africa, which creates added value for consumers in Europe. At the same time they produce sustainably. This is why Hans Peter Werder established HPW AG in 1997. HPW employed its first staff in Ghana in 2004 to meet the huge demand for Fairtrade pineapples. HPW Services Ltd. Ghana was launched in 2006 with the aim of offering management and agricultural support to pineapple producers and matching the cultivation and management of fields to the needs of retailers in Europe. The realisation that Ghana also offers extremely good mangoes, bananas and coconuts as well as pineapples, led in 2011 to the set-up of the largest dried fruit production plant in West Africa.
Today HPW is a reliable partner for wholesalers and retailers and the food industry in Europe. They are one of the leading suppliers of Ghanaian pineapples, as well as cut fruit, tropical dried fruit and specialist vegetables from Africa and Asia. See more
