Cameroon cocoa-coffee sectors: Government to merge services in-charge of production supervision

The Cameroonian government is working towards the establishment of a supra-structure, which will merge all the duties and prerogatives currently attributed to the Société de Dévelopment du Cacao (Sodecao – Cocoa Development Company), the Office National du Cacao et du Café (ONCC – National Cocoa and Coffee Board) and the Fonds de Dévelopment des Filières Cacao-Café (Fodecc – Cocoa-Coffee Development Fund), we learned from reliable sources.

A source close to this project explains that the idea is through this merger, to end the dissipation of missions observed until now, as well as the spreading of energies through several entities which, despite important financial means made available to them, have not been able to produce the results expected in terms of reviving the cocoa-coffee sectors.

The new configuration announced in the management of the cocoa-coffee sectors in Cameroon is closely related to the one used before in the 90’s, with a National Commodities Marketing Board (Office national de commercialisation des produits de base, Oncpb) which presided over the destiny of the cocoa-coffee sectors. But, this public giant was liquidated with the liberalisation of the two sectors, whose results are questionable, mainly with regards to the quantity and quality of the production, and even the efficient management of producers, which seemed to have been handed over to the cocoa-coffee professional association.
