Reformed cocoa market benefits Liberian farmers: but watch out for new forms of market power and elite capture
The Nordic Africa Institute, Conflict, Displacement and Transformation.
2015 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The business environment for smallholder cocoa farmers in Liberia has improved. Game-changing efforts by the government have increased competition among cocoa buyers and led to higher producer prices. Farmers are also encouraged by new investors to improve the quality of cocoa, for which they earn more. In addition, famers organisations have strengthened their bargaining power. However, policy-makers must be alert to a possible backlash if competion is not ensured, and from elite capture of farmers’ organisations.
