NEPC To Partner Cocoa Farmers On Export
The Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC), Ibadan Export Assistant Office, has assured cocoa farmers in Oyo State of its willingness to support the increase in their chances of producing premium cocoa for export.
The Oyo state government also said it would soon begin the biometric enumeration of cocoa farmers so that support could get to the real farmers to increase the state’s stake in the world cocoa export map.
The assurances came during an Export Development Programme on Argo-Allied sectors in the state-organized for cocoa farmers and stakeholders by the Ibadan office of the NEPC, held at Dugbe, Ibadan.

She said the council was worried about why cocoa production had declined over the years, especially the export potential, and as such, called the cocoa farmers as well as other stakeholders to address the challenges.
