What does it take to effectively implement an inclusive business in the agro-processing industry? The author examines the experiences of two agro-processing firms in Ghana. The literature indicates that any business that combines employment opportunities with expanded output of goods and services is both socially and economically beneficial. The author found that the creation of new markets for local suppliers, expanded output of goods and services, and the development of new markets for formerly undetected needs and wants—both domestic and international—offered prospects of transforming the lives of the poor through creation of wealth and dignity.
