Red Ghana

About the Origin

Ghana is a breathtaking country filled to the brim with interesting historical sights, cultural festivals, stunning beaches and beautiful wildlife parks, and therefore one of West Africa’s most popular tourist destinations. With approximately 100 years of experience, Ghana has a relatively young history of cocoa cultivation. The first Ghanaian cocoa plantations were founded in Mampong with cocoa seeds imported from Bioko, an island 32 km off the west coast of Africa. Today, Ghana is the world's second largest cocoa exporter with plantations forming a wide belt that stretches from the southeast to the southwest of the country. Because of its constant, exceptional quality and very stable yields, the cocoa that Ghana produces truly is the better of West-African cocoa.
