cocoaKuapa Kokoo Limited (KKL), a licensed cocoa buying company, has cautioned purchasing clerks (PCs) who indulge in cheating, to stop the practice in their own interest.

Mr Peter Moro, the Atwima-Mponua District Manager, said those caught short-changing the farmer through the adjustment of weighing scales and other acts of malfeasance, would face punitive sanctions.

He said as farmers’ cooperative organization, the company would go to every length to protect the interest of “hard working Ghanaian cocoa farmers”.

Mr Moro was addressing the annual district meeting of farmers and PCs of the KKL at Nyinahin in the Atwima-Mponua District.

He encouraged the farmers to cultivate the habit of saving part of their earnings and to invest in the education of their children.

Mr Emmanuel Tawiah, District President of the Company, urged his colleague farmers to make sure that they pay for fertilizers supplied to them on credit by the KKL.

He said they should also stick to best practices to maintain the quality of the country’s cocoa beans.

  1. Whose responsibility is it, leaders by strealining the old system with ICT or technology instead of the old system. Deployed scanners with better technology which allows purchsing, paying and shipping much easier, so that no one handle cash or tipping the scale or anupilating the systems, that is what leaders do. Not keep borrowing money every Cocoa season just to purchase cocoa for many decades not making profit to use to purchase the following years harvest.
