Cameroon is one of the six biggest cocoa producing countries. The others are Ivory Coast, Ghana, Indonesia, Nigeria and Brazil.

In a bid to diversify the economy in view of declining oil production, the Government launched recently a five-year campaign to revamp the cocoa sector and boost output to 200 000 tonnes per year. 160 000 tonnes of cocoa have been produced in 2003/04 in Cameroon, where between one million and two million people depend directly or indirectly on the cocoa sector.
