Abstract: The cocoa sector in Ghana is of strategic importance to the socioeconomic development of the nation. Cocoa has been described as the backbone of Ghana’s economy. Finding appropriate solutions to the challenges facing the cocoa industry will assist the country to increase its performance and prevent farmers from smuggling cocoa to neighbouring nations. However, there is lack of standards to address the challenges with Ghana’s cocoa value chain. Using survey, document reviews, structured interview and Porter’s diamond model, we examined the cocoa value chain in Ghana. Our results can serve as services and standards for the cocoa value chain in Ghana and other similar countries.
