Morale boost for Widuru

The partnership between the Cocoa Board of PNG and Wafi-Golpu Joint Venture has proven to be beneficial for rural farmers.

Early this month, delegates from the two organisations visited Widuru village in Nawaeb district, and launched a cocoa combination solar dryer that was donated by Wafi-Golpu.

When celebrating the launching of their new cocoa dryer, chairman of Aneclu Cocoa Cooperative Society, Geob Kapitai, said this new development should set them on the path to becoming Morobe’s top cocoa producer.
