Accessing high-end markets can be lucrative, and therefore has the potential to raise smallholder incomes substantially – but this strategy requires specialised skills and technology, and relies on direct market linkages. This case describes a multi-sector collaboration that aims to equip Ghanaian cocoa farmers to produce fine flavour beans that would carry a substantial premium in the market. We draw lessons from both the technological and organisational aspects of the project.
