The Management of SuperMaritime Ghana Limited at the weekend, described as untrue a statement by the Food and Drugs Board that the company had imported unwholesome rice into the Ghanaian market.
A statement issued by Captain Harm Krale, Director of the company said SuperMaritime Ghana Ltd was part of an international group of shipping companies, offering a comprehensive range of ship and cargo forwarding services including oil and gas in Africa, Latin America and Europe.
"Our core businesses are Ship Agents, Crew Handling, Clearing and Forwarding. We are not a commodity trading company. Indeed, we neither import nor export commodities into/out of Ghana. Our reputation in the shipping industry is well established internationally," the statement said.
It said no cargo is allowed to be discharged unless the authorities were satisfied with all health and other requirements.
"Should it be established that a cargo, which was cleared as wholesome has later become unwholesome in the warehouse, SuperMaritime Ghana Ltd acting as agents will assist the authorities involved for the appropriate action."
The statement said all details concerning any cargo imported, exported in or out of the country may be accessed through Ghana Customs, Ghana Community Network, Port Authorities and other state agencies.
"We appreciate the work of Food and Drugs Board as well as other agencies in their role to ensure public safety and security and SuperMaritime Ghana Ltd will be happy to assist whenever required," the statement said.
