Cocoa Powder

Ghana - organic

Organic cocoa powder made entirely in Ghana from untreated, roasted cocoa beans. Since the beans are not alkalised, the powder is lighter coloured and has a more intense taste than that found in the supermarket. The cocoa powder is highly de-oiled.

VIDA AMA ODIFARMER FROM NSUTA WAWASE, GHANA
I need more funds to keep my farm going.

"My family helps me with the work in the fields, but sometimes we need to hire workers. That's always a big challenge for me and it's also very expensive. There are 13 people in our family. I am married with three sons and nine grandchildren. One of my sons is a teacher, another is a banker and the third is an electrician. I wish I had the resources to better maintain my farm and increase my income. Motorised equipment would be a big help."
