About Me

My name is George Zephaniah Offei; a native of Agona Swedru in the Central Region of Ghana. I was born and bred in Agona Swedru, Ghana and still lives at Agona Swedru. I am married with two (2) children.

Gentleman of thirty-six (36) years of age who holds a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting from Pan African University Collage, Winneba – Ghana, I aim at building a good family and growing my own business.

I am currently the CEO of Gezant Farms Ltd. I used to work with a financial institution by name Nationwide Micro Finance Ltd as branch Operations Officer. Its operations came to an end in 31/05/2019 as a result of banking crisis in my country (Ghana). In addition, I have a joint private printing press business by name Data Publicity Co. Ltd, located at Agona Swedru.

My Business

I currently own two (2) businesses; Data Publicity and Gezant Farms.

DATE PUBLICITY
Data Publicity was established in the year 2011 after completion of my tertiary education in the year 2010 with a start-up capital of Two Thousand Ghana Cedis (GH¢2,000.00) through personal savings from my national services. It is a joint business and it is own by my junior brother (Patrick Quaye) and I with an equal capital contribution.

Data Publicity is a printing press business located at Agona Swedru in the Central Region of Ghana. Services offered include sticker printing, flexy banners printing, T-Shirt printing, graphic designing, photocopies, printing of invitation cards, etc.

We currently have a large customer base due to the good interpersonal relationship that I have and still hoping to expand my customer base.

Data Publicity is currently operating with three other staffs with my junior brother (Patrick Quaye) being the General Manager.


GEZANT FARMS
Gezant Farms is a Ghanaian owned business which started its operations on March 1, 2018, with the vision of feeding generations with quality and affordable foods. It was later registered on December 21, 2018, with poultry farming being its main business. It is situated at Agona Swedru in the central region of Ghana and operates within the borders of the country; Ghana. It is a joint business own by my wife (Antoinette Offei) and I; with me being the majority shareholder.

Gezant Farms is currently into Quail Farming with over 1,500 birds. One of its main products is QUAIL EGGS from birds known as Quails. Quail eggs, according to scientific research, are the best source of vitamins for human health. Research has also proven that quail eggs contain 13% protein and it is greater than the protein in chicken eggs which only contain 11%. Quail eggs also contain other nutrients such as Vitamin E, Vitamin B2, Zinc, Iron and other beneficial nutrients. Even though quail eggs are small in size, their dietary worth is three to four times more than chicken eggs and are filled with nutrients and minerals. Daily consumption of quail eggs helps fight many diseases and supports the human immune system.

Quail Eggs business has become lucrative in Ghana and is currently competing with other types of egg business especially chicken eggs. Ghanaians have now become aware of the numerous health benefits of Quail Eggs and this has led to an increase in taste and preference of the product over the past years.

Profits generated from this business are used for expansion and Corporate Social Responsibilities.

It is the vision of the company to expand its production and move into other types of poultries such as chicken, turkey, etc.

The company is currently operating with three other staffs with me (George Offei) being the CEO and General Manager.
