Cocoa crops was introduced in Ghana by a blacksmith known as Tetteh Quarshie in 1870 according to the cocoafromghana.org. Cocoa today constitute as a chief cash crop in the Ghanaian Agriculture space.Tetteh Quarshie who returned to his farm at the Eastern Region after his works as a blacksmith at Fernando po ( now Bioko) in the Equatorial Guinea.
He started his farm, growing cocoa crops. One will wonder how cocoa farming expanded in Ghana. This is because he sold the cocoa pods to other farmers who were interested in cocoa farming.
Cocoa has expanded beyond the Eastern Region of Ghana to regions like the Ashanti Region, Western Region, Bono Region, Ahafo Region and the Volta Region.
Cocoa has become a chief cash crop in Ghana where most cocoa product companies get most of their raw materials from Ghana.
Ghana has become one of the leaders in the producers of cocoa amongst countries like Cote d'Ivoire and also contributing a major percentage of the world's total output.
Thanks to Tetteh Quarshie for an effort well made.
