Meanwhile, a video of a cocoa peeling machine invented in China has surfaced on social media in Ghana following recent reports that China might soon be producing more cocoa than Ghana.
In the footage sighted by YEN.com.gh on the Twitter handle of Saddick Adams, the machine is simply stacked with the full cocoa fruit in a shoot.
Within seconds, the husk is removed from the beans mixed with the fruit.
This has warranted several comments as Ghana started producing cocoa in 1878 when Tetteh Quarshie brought the beans to Ghana and no such technological advancement has been made to assist the farmers.
