ePac Flexible Packaging is expanding into Africa, with its operation in Ghana now taking orders.

ePac Flexible Packaging was established in 2016 in the US, and today operates 18 manufacturing plants across North America, Europe and Asia. Whilst a dedicated ePac plant is a built in Ghana, all orders for Africa will be fulfilled by the ePac UK plant in Silverstone.

ePac Ghana is to be locally managed by Victor Sosah, a Ghanaian entrepreneur with extensive experience in flexible packaging.

ePac Flexible Packaging CEO Jack Knott commented, ‘We are fortunate to have a partner in Ghana with all the qualifications we look for when opening a new ePac location. Victor brings a multitude of talents to ePac, cares deeply about the community, and is committed to helping local brands grow. This is precisely ePac’s mission across the globe.’

Mr Sosah said, ‘As a Ghanaian, I am acutely aware of the need for healthy eating options in our country, increasing local production, and reducing our reliance on imported foods whilst promoting made in Ghana products both locally and internationally. Our focus here with ePac Ghana will be to help local and regional small and medium-sized businesses be successful and to make a difference in the communities we serve.’

Virag Patel, ePac Flexible Packaging chief operating officer, added, ‘Bringing our unique business model to Ghana to help local brands is exciting. ePac Ghana will serve as a base for further expansion on the African continent.’
