Cocoa Powder

Ghana - organic

Made from untreated beans

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
Farming helps me take care of my children and send them to school.

My family helps me with the work in the fields, but sometimes we have to hire workers, which is very expensive and a big challenge for me. There are 13 of us in our family: I am married with three sons and nine grandchildren. One of my children is a teacher, another is a banker and the third is an electrician. I wish I had the necessary means to take better care of my farm and increase the yields. One way to do this would be to buy motorised equipment.
