A viral video of China’s cocoa farmers using machines to harvest and peel their cocoa beans from the pod has dropped online.
China in less than a year has begun exportation of cocoa beans to Belgium after Nana Addo advocated to turn Ghana’s cocoa bean into finish goods.

Ghanaian cocoa farmers in the 21 century for over 150 years continues to use human labour in processing cocoa from harvesting to removal of beans to drying to bagging and exporting.
This process takes more days for the farmer to be able to harvest all his products and gets it ready for the market, making some of them ending up been spoilt as the labour force for the work is less.
