CRIG's objectives are to:

  • provide the farmer with a package of improved planting materials and husbandry practices/technologies for optimal yield and high economic returns under sustainable environmental conditions.
  • conduct demand-driven research into, and develop techniques for the processing of cocoa, coffee, shea, kola and cashew.
  • conduct research into and develop new products (including by-products and other residues or waste parts other than traditional ones) from cocoa, coffee, shea, kola and cashew, to diversify farmers' income.
  • establish strong linkages with the Extension Services for effective transfer of research findings, new technologies and agronomic practices to farmers.
