Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, the Minority Leader, has raised concerns in Parliament about the skyrocketing food prices in Ghana, with some items increasing by as much as 140%. Speaking on June 11, he noted that this situation has forced food vendors to reduce the sizes of their portions to keep prices stable.

“Mr. Speaker, high food prices are not the only issue. We are also facing food shrinkflation, where vendors keep prices the same but give less food,” Dr. Forson explained. He highlighted this by mentioning popular items like Ga Kenkey and Nkran dokon, which have noticeably smaller portions now.

“Mr. Speaker, times are very hard! Ghanaians are suffering!” he lamented, emphasizing the tough economic conditions. Dr. Forson’s remarks came as he welcomed his colleagues back from their recess, underscoring the urgency of addressing the economic hardships facing the country.
