DR LOWOR RETIRES

Date: 28th August 2023

The Deputy Executive Director in charge of Coffee, Shea & Cashew, at the Cocoa Research Institute of Ghana (CRIG), Dr. Samuel Tetteh Lowor, has retired after 32 years of active service to the Institute.   

His retirement took effect on 11th August 2023, when he turned sixty. A send-off ceremony was held at the CRIG Clubhouse in his honour.  

Dr. Lowor expressed his gratitude to God for enabling him to retire honourably from CRIG, the agronomic and plant research division of the Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD). He was also thankful to the staff, his family, especially, his wife and children for giving him the needed support to work successfully to retirement.  

Narrating his experience in the years of service, Dr. Lowor disclosed that he joined the Institute in 1991 as an Assistant Research Officer and by dint of hard work, commitment and discipline rose through the ranks to become the Head of Physiology/Biochemistry in 2017 until his appointment to the Office of the Deputy Executive Director. 

As an astute chemist, Dr. Lowor will be remembered for spearheading innovation in chemistry-based research, especially, in areas of flavour and aromatic substances of cocoa and coffee, primary processing quality and development of by-products from cashew and shea. Also, his wealth of knowledge in agrochemical residue analysis on cocoa is unrivalled.  

In honour of his contribution to the success of CRIG and the cocoa industry, the management and staff presented him with a heart-warming citation as a token to say Ayeeko and wished him a happy healthy retirement.
