Chief Executive officer of COCOBOD, Joseph Boahen Aidoo has called out the European Union, accusing it of double standards in its assessment of Ghana’s cocoa sector in recent times.

The European Union has threatened to ban cocoa from Ghana if the negative impact of illegal mining on the country’s environment persists.

Belgium which is a part of the EU however recently imported cocoa beans from China, which the CEO says is not blameless in terms of degradation.

On October 1, 2020, Ghana and Ivory Coast began receiving a Living Income Differential (LID) of four hundred United States dollars per ton of cocoa, which is an additional earning from the world market price for cocoa farmers.
