(Business in Cameroon) - Since the first week of February 2019, the cocoa farm gate price in Cameroon has once again reached XAF1,000, according to statistics compiled by the Sector Information System (SIF).

On February 18, 2018, this price fluctuated between XAF950 and XAF1,000 in most production zones. A new increase that can be explained by the easy access to the production areas thanks to the dry season which makes roads very passable.

However these rather attractive prices are still below the XAF1,500 CFA per kilogram recorded less than 5 years ago.
