Cocoa Board of PNG

Cocoa is ‘national crop’

The Cocoa Board of PNG executives were in Lae recently to hand over a dinghy and dirt bike to their office in Morobe.

Acting CEO, Tony Vigil, highlighted the momentum of cocoa production in PNG, describing it as a ‘rural crop’ that involves 2 million farmers who have generated over K300 million for our economy.

“We are now regarded as a ‘national crop’,” he said. “We are also covering the Highlands. We’ll be opening an office in the highlands, in Kundiawa. This shows that the industry is growing.
