To boost cocoa production in the country, the Royal Netherlands Embassy, Ghana, has signed a 7 million Euro grant for a four-year Cocoa Rehabilitation and Intensification Programme (CRIP). The Dutch Ambassador to Ghana, H.E. Hans Docter, indicated that the grant is expected to leverage an additional private sector cocoa industry funding of 14 million Euros.
The project would be managed and coordinated by Solidaridad West Africa, with cocoa sector partners and industries, including International Fertiliser Development Corporation (IFDC), Armajaro, Cargill, ECOM, Barry Callebaut, ADM and Continaf.
