Ghana: the second-largest cocoa producer in the world
The history of cocoa in Ghana begins with the arrival of the British who colonized the area, which was then nicknamed the Gold Coast. The English shaped the local economy by developing the cultivation of cocoa there starting in 1901. The cocoa tree had been first introduced to Ghana several years before in 1879, in a limited geographical area surrounding Accra. The industry grew exponentially up until 1938, benefitting from a fall in the price of palm oil, the rapid expansion of rubber exports and demographic pressure. During the 1930s, annual production reached 300,000 tons, 45% of production worldwide. A period of stagnation followed, lasting until 1964, before a collapse between 1965 and 1982. A drop in the price of cocoa and the arrival of new competitors such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Brazil and the Ivory Coast were the causes. The implementation of an economic stimulus allowed the industry to begin growing again and reach 900,000 tons in 2014.
Goal: become the no. 1 producer
In head-to-head competition with another African country, the Ivory Coast, Ghana wants to produce more than a million cocoa beans each year. Remember that Ghana held first place in worldwide production until 1978. At the end of 2014, the government had already announced a loan of 1.7 billion dollars whose goal was financing the purchase of the raw materials necessary for producing cocoa. The battle with the Ivory Coast over the cocoa bean will be a close one.
Aside from these economic considerations, don't hesitate to head to Planète Chocolat's online store, choose your favorite products and request that the Belgian chocolate delivery service send them to Ghana.
