Chocolate Tourism In Ghana


       Located in the western part of Africa is a small country known as the Republic of Ghana that is widely known around the world for its lush forests and abundant mineral resources.

       However, there is one more fact as a result of which Ghana is gaining increased importance during recent years. Ghana is all set to become a major destination for chocolate tourism.

       The United States and European countries have always been the biggest manufacturers of chocolates, and these countries exclusively purchase cocoa from Ghana and use it for making chocolates. This is due to the fact that Ghana is the second largest producer and a major exporter in the world for cocoa, the main ingredient used in the preparation of chocolates. Despite this fact, Ghana has never been known for producing its own brands of chocolates. Even the domestic consumption of cocoa in Ghana is not of any significant percentage. The three major companies that produce chocolates and candy bars in Ghana include the Cocoa Processing Company of Ghana, Cadbury Ghana and Nestle Ghana. The government of Ghana is trying to develop initiatives so that more and more private players establish their cocoa processing plants in the country.

       Recent reports suggest that chocolates have a medical significance apart from sweetening the souls and filling them with joy. Cocoa present inside the chocolate has been found to control diseases such as cancer and diabetes.

        With the objective of promoting industrial participation and chocolate tourism in Ghana, the Ministry of Tourism and Diasporan Relations in coordination with Ghana Cocoa board has launched a public relations campaign by declaring February 14th or the Valentine’s Day as National Chocolate Day in the country so as to boost cocoa sales across the nation. This day is celebrated under the theme “Chocolate: a gift of lover and health”.

         As a part of tourism affairs, foreign and domestic tourists can visit the leading chocolate processing companies in the country and experience the process of chocolate making. A visit to the local cocoa farms will make the journey a truly enthralling experience.
