Ghana attains highest cocoa production in history for 2020/2021 season
Ghana has produced the highest volume of cocoa beans in history, exceeding over one million metric tonnes with over ten weeks left until the end of the season, according to official data.
Data on the grading of beans by Quality Control Company of COCOBOD shows that with just two weeks to go in the light crop season, the board has recorded over one million (1,030,000) metric tonnes.
Even though the season is not over, this will be the highest production recorded in the country’s production history. This figure is expected to be higher by the close of the season. Before this new record, the highest production of a little over one million (1,024,000) metric tonnes was recorded in the 2010/11 season.
