Speaking at the 3rd Annual Cocoa Farmers Conference at Tarkwa in the Western Region, they said, the princing of the beans does not include the labour of the Cocoa Farmer. Meanwhile, Employees of Cocobod like Purchasing Clicks, Depot Keepers, Port Officers, Quality Control Officers and others all take their salaries from this farm gate price and enjoy admirable living standards. They have very good and well structured welfare packages like pension and health care and bonuses, can this also be said of the farmer who toils to produce the golden beans which others are enjoying?.
