CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
Cocoa Marketing is the process
whereby ownership of cocoa beans is transferred from grower to the chocolate
manufacturer.
Broadly, there are many stages
involved cocoa marketing, for instance, in the past, only dried beans were
taken to central store where the buyers weigh and pay for the cocoa beans.  During the time where cocoa and chocolate
were still luxury articles, producer sent their cocoa to Agents in London and
other consuming centers where it was sold by auction or by negotiation.  Nowadays, marketing is done right from the
village.

business and thousands of people are engaged and earn their income from it both
at the farm level and at industrial processing stage.  It is pertinent to recall that cocoa market
gained prominence rapidly in Nigeria,
such as that in 1965.  Nigeria rose to
become the second largest exporter in the world.  Cocoa
contributed to aggregate export earning. 
Cocoa pod husks find use in the manufacture of animal feed and soap
manufacturing.  Cocoa fetches the best price in the markets
in the month of September and March the following year.

marketers are complaining of not making reasonable margin.
