Mr Anthony Fofie, Chief Executive of Ghana Cocoa Board (Cocobod) on Thursday said activities of illegal miners is taking a serious toll on cocoa production.

He said illegal miners have invaded between 1.5 million hectares and 1.7 million hectares of cocoa farm lands, destroying cocoa trees to explore for gold.
Mr Fofie said at present, Ghana's cocoa production stands at 830,000 tonnes, out of which two-thirds is exported and one- third processed for domestic consumption.
He said Ghana is currently producing 450 kilograms per hectare and is expecting to increase production to 1,000 kilograms per hectare through pragmatic and strategic innovations.
Mr Fofie, was addressing stakeholders' workshop on "Ghana Cocoa Platform (GCP)" and Ghana Cocoa Sector Scenario Planning Exercise in Accra, said.
He said GCP is to serve as a mechanism for multi-stakeholders dialogue to effectively address key issues pertaining to cocoa production.
The three-year GCP would be funded by donor agencies and Cocobod at a cost of 1.2 million dollars, to look into the priority areas of cocoa production and management of quality.
Mr Fofie said the cocoa sector is faced with climate change and disease and pest control challenges.
"Climate change is a major cause of the limitation in cocoa production in recent time and it is also affecting the size and quality of the cocoa beans," he said.
