The National Service Scheme, NSS says it will begin the production of bottled and sachet water next year.

The Deputy Executive Director of the scheme, Kwame Ohene saysÂ NSS has completed the construction of a factory at Medie, on the Accra-Nsawam road where the production of the bottled and sachet water will be done.
â€˜â€˜We all know the situation in the country as far as unemployment is concerned, so we are doing this to complement governmentâ€™s drive and efforts in addressing the issues of youth unemploymentâ€™â€™.
''We have a huge factory at Medie, which was constructed purposely for this project and we hoping to start commercial production early next year. The team has already visited the Shanghai Province in China from where we are acquiring our set of equipment and we were simply amazed at what we saw.â€™â€™Â
The NSS says the project will be one of the biggest in Ghana and will be financed by the Scheme.
Mr. Djan stated that the current management under the leadership of NSS boss, Mustapha Ussif is so committed to the project bearing in mind the enormous benefits the Scheme and the good people of Ghana stand to derive when fully operational.
