TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE PROSPECTS IN THE COCOA VALUE CHAIN – CE ADVISES NASPAC

Date: 11th August 2022

Hon Joseph Boahen Aidoo, the Chief Executive of Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD), has urged members of the 2022 year group of the National Service Personnel of COCOBOD (NASPAC) to take advantage of the numerous opportunities within the cocoa value chain as their service period comes to an end. 

Addressing the NASPAC members across the Subsidiaries and Divisions at the COCOBOD Head Office in Accra, Hon Aidoo emphasized the need for them to identify potential business prospects along the cocoa value chain which can provide more income as they enter the job market.

“There are a lot of opportunities in the cocoa sector such as processing, service provision to farmers, baking, handmade chocolate production etc. which can give you more income than the one seated in an office”, he stated.

“Do not sit at home and wait for a well-paid job, the skills and knowledge acquired during your stay in the industry should be the backbone of your working life and should be applied as you leave COCOBOD”, he emphasized. 

Touching on employment, Hon. Joseph Boahen Aidoo stated that the fall in the price of cocoa and other economic factors in the world market has made it impossible for the company to recruit new staff. 

“It is otherwise the wish of management that, many of you would get the opportunity to serve in the sector”, he said.

Hon Aidoo further expressed his profound gratitude to all National Service Personnel across the Subsidiaries and Divisions of COCOBOD for their immense contribution towards sustaining the sector.

Management appreciates your contributions, he said, and as well wishes you all the best as you leave COCOBOD.

The Director of Human Resources, Mr Randolph Adei, for his part, lauded the initiative where service personnel get the opportunity to interact with management before the end of their service period and praised their leadership for the skills exhibited during the period.

Some of the National Service personnel asked questions and gave feedback to management on their yearlong experiences at COCOBOD during the Q&A session of the meeting.

Present at the event were some Directors and Managers from the Subsidiaries and Divisions of COCOBOD.
