Consume Ghana’s nutritious chocolates – Ama Dokua


The deputy minister of trade and industry, Nana Ama Dokua Asiamah-Adjei, is urging Ghanaians to support and consume locally-produced chocolates and cocoa products as Ghana celebrates Chocolate Day on February 14.

“On this day of celebrating our annual chocolate day, I want to share this beautiful day with you in love and encourage us of the importance of promoting, patronising and consuming our very own healthy and nutritious Ghanaian chocolates and other cocoa products,” Asiamah-Adjei said.

The deputy minister, who is also the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate for Okaikwei North constituency, underscores the manifold benefits of embracing Ghanaian-made chocolates, emphasising their role in fostering employment opportunities and empowering local businesses.

She highlights the pivotal role that patronage of Ghanaian cocoa products plays in sustaining the livelihoods of Ghanaian citizens and driving economic growth.

“Let’s eat Ghanaian made chocolates, let’s stay healthy and let’s grow together Ghana’s value addition in the cocoa industry,” Asiamah-Adjei concludes, rallying the nation to unite in supporting and celebrating Ghana’s rich cocoa heritage.

The cocoa sector in Ghana and West Africa holds profound significance, with the region being a major global producer. Ghana, second only to Ivory Coast, plays a pivotal role in cocoa production, contributing significantly to the economies of both the country and the broader West African region.

Cocoa farming serves as a vital source of livelihood for millions of farmers and their families, while also shaping national and regional economic landscapes.
