Tetteh Quarshie Cocoa Farm & Exhibition Centre


The upgraded Receptive facility at the Tetteh Quarshie Cocoa Farm and Exhibition Centre would honour the memory of Tetteh Quarshie who is credited with being the first person to bring cocoa to Ghana. The upgrade of the facility is to enhance visitor experience.

The Tetteh Quarshie Cocoa Farm and Exhibition Centre is one of many such upgrades at various stages of completion across the country.


The site is one of the oldest in the country but has seen very minimal patronage over the years. The plan is to bring the site up to a standard where it could tell the Cocoa story from planting to through processing to production.


Receptive facility has an audiovisual room for showing orientation videos on various aspects of cocoa. It also has exhibition spaces where different thematic presentations can be mounted to enhance the interpretation of the cocoa story. The Farm is expected to feature prominently in the renewed projection of cocoa as a national asset and the broader dissemination of information about the crop and its contribution to Ghana.

The Tetteh Quarshie Cocoa Farm and Exhibition Centre project include the following facilities;

  • A tourist Information Centre
  • Two exhibition halls
  • An audiovisual orientation room
  • A gift shop
  • New perimeter fencing
  • New washrooms

The Results

The site has a conducive environment for tourists.
