The statement advised the general public that only COCOBOD “has the mandate to regulate the Coffee Industry.”
It warned that the company would take legal action against companies found to be engaged in the purchase of Coffee without licence.
The statement said five companies namely, De Long Limited; Kassardjan Industries (Ghana) Limited; Lonto Limited; Mamita Coffee Product Limited; and Time Marketing Company Limited, had been licensed by COCOBOD to buy the product.
“Other Licensed-Buying Companies are entreated to contact the office of the Chief Executive for the regularization of their licenses,” it added.
