Some restaurant owners in the Ashanti Region are entreating customers to make provision to buy soup and stew for their fufu and rice due to the rising cost of foodstuff.
Sam Charles, who speaks for the group, told Nhyira FM’s Obidehyie Ofori Amanfo that dishing out soup and stew for free at restaurants is killing their businesses.
We are giving the government up to the end of this month, if things continue like this, then be ready to put money aside to buy soup and stew.
“When someone talks about it, they say the person has been bribed, you will come and buy soup to taste the reality too.”, he added.
The food industry falls under the Tourism Ministry, but the entrepreneurs said there has been no support system.
“The food industry falls under the tourism industry, but they have neglected us and are concentrating only on creative arts.
But the tourism industry doesn’t care about us, even for training they don’t give to us often.
