2. Ghana: Cocoa farmers to earn 21% more for their produce
Cocoa farmers will earn more for their produce in the next cocoa season than they currently receive for the same output of beans in the ongoing season. It follows plans by the government, through the Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD), to raise the cocoa producer price (CPI) paid to cocoa farmers by more than 21 percent for the 2020/21 season.
The 21 percent increment will translate into GH¢625 per 64-kilogram bag of cocoa beans, compared to the GH¢515 being paid for the same quantity of beans in the ongoing season. For a tonne of cocoa beans, the 21 percent increment means that farmers will receive a minimum of GH¢10,000 for their produce. Currently, a tonne of cocoa is GH¢8,240.
