Press release

Cocoa from Ghana is a Dutch-Ghanaian initiative and aims to raise awareness for its product. The global demand for cocoa is approximately 4.2 million tonnes, 800,000 tonnes of which comes from Ghana. With Amsterdam as the world’s largest transhipment port for cocoa beans, the Netherlands is a major trading partner for the Ghanaian cocoa industry.

Cocoa from Ghana supports many different sports. The same qualities – commitment, collaboration, and outstanding results – apply equally to professional sports and the production of high-quality cocoa. In the Netherlands, Cocoa from Ghana is a sponsor of the Dutch women’s handball team to safeguard the continuity of handball as top-level sport.

This past June marked the beginning of the one-year sponsorship of the Ghana Olympic Committee with the intention to extend this sponsorship to the 2020 Olympic Games. Cocoa from Ghana is also an official sponsor of the West African Football Academy (WAFA) which was founded by the Feyenoord Football Academy. Cocoa from Ghana wants to make a contribution to the future of these athletes.
