Unfortunately, the content of the letter was misconstrued, leading to false claims and confusion among the public.

In response, the Ghana Cocoa Board has clarified that all processing companies established in Ghana after November 2001 are legally permitted to import cocoa beans for processing purposes.

This practice is to allow the companies to meet their desired recipes for chocolate production and other uses.

According to them, this practice has been in existence for over 20 years and includes importing beans from countries such as Cote d’Ivoire, Togo, Nigeria, and Ecuador.
