The Liberia Agriculture Commodities Regulatory Authority or LACRA constitutes a new management team at its sub-office in Lofa County with a mandate to regulate production of agricultural products particularly, cocoa, coffee and palm oil.
A press release from LACRA says the team will immediately start with monitoring of the production of oil palm, cocoa, and coffee to ensure there is coordination between actors operating in that part of the country.
The new Management team headed by Dr. John S. Flomo, Jr. along with two Deputies, Ronald Kekula Mends-Cole and Musa Konneh have been instrumental in revamping the entity, which has been dormant for many years.
Immediately following their appointments, the three officials initiated renovation work at the entity’s main office at the Freeport of Monrovia and began regular visitation at four of its sub-offices in Lofa, Bong, Nimba and Grand Bassa counties, respectively in an effort to reclaim some of the properties which were encroached on my locals.
Meanwhile, LACRA Deputy Director General for Operation and Technical Services Musa Konneh, who is currently visiting Central and northern Liberia on an inspection tour, has called for total collaboration between those operating in the cocoa sector.
LACRA was established to promote production, processing and marketing of high quality agricultural commodities particularly, cocoa, coffee and palm products from Liberia characterized by fair competition among all actors in a value chain. Press Release
