Tomatoes and Greed – The Exodus of Ghana's Farmers

The cultivation of tomatoes, once a significant source of livelihood for Ghanaian farmers, has been marred by rampant greed and exploitation. Intermediaries known as "middlemen" have taken control of the market, dictating low prices that barely cover production costs. This systematic oppression has forced many farmers to abandon their livelihoods, leading to an exodus from rural areas and contributing to rising food insecurity in Ghana.
