February 14 (Valentines Day) is a day set aside annually to celebrate love. In Ghana, the day used to be associated with social vises and other unhealthy behaviors. The Ghana Tourism Authority, under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism thus re-christened the February 14, as CHOCOLATE DAY.
This was aimed at reducing the social vises associated with the day while promoting the consumption of Chocolate and for that matter Ghana’s cocoa.
As part of events marking this day, the tourism authority hotels, restaurants and most public places including corporate organisations show their love through the sharing of chocolate products.
The Ghana Tourism Authority in partnership with stakeholders also holds special programmes on cocoa and chocolates as well as distribute chocolate products to mostly the vulnerable in society.
