Determining global cocoa price: Let’s support Ghana – Cote d’Ivoire Cocoa Initiative …COCOBOD boss lobbies African countries The Chief Executive of the Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD), Joseph BoahenAidoo, has invited cocoa producing countries in Africa to join the Ghana – Cote d’Ivoire Cocoa Initiative in order to give the continent a stronger voice in the cocoa value chain in the world. MrAidoo said by signing unto the initiative, the continent which produces about 80 per cent of the world’s cocoa would be a stronger force in determining the price of the commodity on the global stage. Addressing a five-member delegation from Nigeria who are in the country to understudy operations of the COCOBOD, MrAidoo said it would be in the interest of the continent to have that force to increase its share of wealth in the cocoa industry because it is unacceptable that the leading producers benefit less than 10 per cent. “If Nigeria joins and hopefully Cameroon comes onboard, we can have a very formidable force within the global cocoa industry. If we are able to do that, then we can have a stronger say in the market when it comes to deciding the price of cocoa. “We will be glad to...
