GHANA - A three-day pork festival aimed at boosting the fortunes of pork farmers and traders ended Saturday, 12 December 2009.

Though attendance on the first day was not very good, organisers hoped more people would take advantage of the weekend to patronise the variety of pork products on display, reports The Mail, citing Joy News.

The show follows the discovery of the H1N1 flu virus which became a global scare and damaged the popularity of pork products.

Pig farmers such as the Chief of Kaneshie, Nii Neequaye Ashaley, expressed hope the event would restore pork to its former popularity among Ghanaians.

"We want to tell the public that there is no way that you can get swine flu from eating pork," Nii Ashaley said, adding, that the perception is wrong.
