Yangoru was once the second largest producer of cocoa in Papua New Guinea; however, in recent years yields have fallen dramatically due to crop devastation, caused by the cocoa pod borer. With the collaboration of the Cocoa Board of Papua New Guinea, a total of K1 million (in units of their currency, the Papua New Guinean kina) will annually be invested in seeding new cocoa plants. The plan is hoping to revitalize the cocoa industry of Yangoru and could generate opportunities to collaborate with other organizations. Check out the link here!
