Meet Nana Owusu-Achau, the founder of Agro Kings, a Ghana-based company that produces the thriving locally-grown rice brand called Nana's Rice.

Nana, who was born and raised in Ghana, got an opportunity to work at a prestigious Wall Street firm after earning his Business & Information Systems degree in the US. However, he decided to come back to Ghana to use his skills with hopes to benefit the Ghanaian people.

He first ventured into a real estate business and started his own property firm in 2013. Two years later, he tried to enter the agricultural field through a cattle-rearing business and then a maize project but it failed due to his inexperience at the time.

In 2017, Nana discovered high-quality and better-tasting rice through a local chief in a rural town. Even though it requires a more expensive and modern farming approach, he grabbed the opportunity to help local farmers produce and supply him with high-quality rice.
