ePac Flexible Packaging has expanded into Africa with its first production plant in Ghana. It is already taking orders, which will be fulfilled by ePac’s UK-based plant while building a plant in Africa is underway.
ePac Ghana will be a collaborative venture with ePac Holdings managed by Victor Sosah, a Ghanaian entrepreneur with extensive experience in flexible packaging.
‘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,’ commented Jack Knott, ePac’s CEO.
Victor Sosah added: ‘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 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.’
‘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,’ concluded Virag Patel, ePac’s chief operating officer.

It specializes in flexible packaging, serving brands of all sizes and, in particular small and medium-sized enterprises.
