The Nkwantanum West Africa Fruit and Food Processing (WAFF) used to be the major outlet for many of the local farm produce, for large scale processing. However it is currently closed down. The value of this processing unit to the district is proven by the request of the majority of the beneficiary communities especially those in the Enyan-Maim and Denkyira zones to get it reactivated.

Currently though, most processing are on medium and very small scale. The edible oil processing at Owane and Essaman, Ochiso and Kromaim and Ochiso local soap (namely Amonkye) point, are the medium scale outlets whilst various individual operators constitute the small scale enterprises. Table 1.6.2 presents the various kinds of agro-processing units and their locations in the district.
