Ghana is the second-largest producer of cocoa worldwide and had record crops in 2021. The distribution of money within this multi-billion dollar industry is imbalanced. To gain insight into different layers of cocoa production in Ghana, I visited COCOBOD in Accra, the big seedling farms in Oyoko and Tafo, and cocoa farmer Ebrahim Mensah in Essueshyia who can barely survive from his harvest. The industry is supposedly working on improving conditions for farmers and building more economic autonomy as a country, as the majority of cocoa beans are processed outside the country, leaving little of the value chain inside. The work was published in Bloomberg Markets.
