Liberia: a minor producer of cocoa
When it comes to cocoa growing, the competition in West Africa is fierce. The top cocoa bean producers are the Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria and Cameroon respectively. The group of countries that follows includes Togo, Sierra Leone and Liberia. The Food and Agriculture Organization for the United Nations (FAO) estimates that Liberia's production of cocoa beans was 2,500 tons in 2004. FAO also claims that is would be difficult for Liberia to significantly increase its production since the areas suitable for cultivation are all already in use. Yet, it was in 1890, it was at the border between the Ivory Coast and Liberia that European colonists established the first cocoa plantations in West Africa. Liberia's cocoa-growing areas are spread out next to the three borders of the Ivory Coast to the east, Guinea to the north and Sierra Leone to the west.
Current projects for reviving the cocoa industry
Decolonization and ongoing disorganization of the state administration have prevented any rapid expansion of the cocoa industry. Over the last few years, several attempts have been made to increase national production. The projects were aimed at helping growers gain access to financing in order to improve input, technology and materials. One of the projects focused more specifically on 3 cantons out of the 15 that make up Liberia: Bong, Nimba, and Grand Gedeh. In the end, in 2014, there are close to 500 producers who have been identified and and 370 hectares of plantations which have been identified and geolocated to receive financing.
