More chocolate for this Val’s Day!
A chocolate shortage is probably the last thing you want to hear about on Valentine’s Day
February 14, every year, is the Saint Valentine’s Day and has been declared a “National Chocolate Day” by the government, to highlight the nutritional benefits of cocoa, the mainstay of the economy, and to encourage the people to consume more of cocoa products, locally.
The Ghana Cocoa Processing Company says Ghanaians should rest assured that chocolate and other related products including pebbles which tends to be in high demand during the month of February will available everywhere without shortage.
The PRO, Ekow Raul says enough chocolate bars have been produced this year to meet demand and there will not be such shortages.
He said that anytime there is such an occasion, the chocolate bars become difficult to find or purchased.
He said it was unfortunate that this should happen in the peak season when demand for their products was so high.
He, however, expressed the hope that the situation would improve in the coming days.
Ghana cocoa processing company has stored about 2million chocolate bars which will be released onto the markets within this week.
