Salt mining is an important economic potential, of Keta. Vast opportunities abound in this area of economic activity and if fully exploited, the salt requirements of the West African sub-region could be met from this Municipality. Through a public private partnership between government of Ghana and ENTREPRENEURS CONSORTIUM, the Keta municipality will soon come alive as an investment destination with the establishment of an INDUSTRIAL SALT ESTATES. The proposed industrial salt estate will have an estimated capacity to produce 1,200,000 metric tons of raw salt per annum developed on a land parcel with an estimated area of 11,200 hectares. There is a two (2) way approach for the saltworks development. Phase 1 will have the potential of producing 600,000 metric tons of raw salt per annum and with the completion of Phase 2, the salt works will have the capacity to produce 1, 200,000 metric tons of raw salt. With the approval of the chiefs and people of Keta and the settlement of all land litigations in areas earmarked for the salt production coupled with governmental assistance, the company, Keta Salt Industrial Estates Ltd is positioned to commence salt mining in the Keta municipality this year. The KETA INDUSTRIAL SALT ESTATES is expected to produce sufficient volumes of salt to support the country’s petrochemical industry.
