Extract

Kuapa Kokoo was founded in 1993 following the liberalisation of the cocoa market in Ghana. By setting up their own company, Kuapa Kokoo farmer members have been able to trade directly with the state-run cocoa board which controls all cocoa exports. It is the only farmer-owned organisation among the private companies granted government licences to trade cocoa. Kuapa Kokoo now represents almost 50,000 small-scale cocoa growers.
