There are few things in life that are as universally loved as chocolate. Whether it's a simple bar of milk chocolate or a rich and decadent truffle, chocolate is a treat that is enjoyed by people of all ages, all around the world. But what is it about chocolate that makes it so special?


Chocolate is incredibly versatile. It can be used in sweet recipes or savory dishes, it can be eaten on its own or used as an ingredient, and it comes in a wide variety of flavors and textures. Chocolate also has a rich history and culture, dating back thousands of years. And, of course, let's not forget the fact that chocolate is simply delicious!

So why do we love chocolate so much? There are really no definitive answer, but that's part of what makes it so special. Chocolate is a treat that can be enjoyed in so many different ways, and that's one of the things that makes it so special to so many people.

The Cocoa Producers


The two largest producers of cocoa beans are Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria and Cameroon. Together they produce more than half (70%) of the world´s cocoa beans. These two are followed by other producing cocoa countries like Indonesia, Nigeria, Cameroon, Brazil and Ecuador.



The Cocoa Trade War


1. What started the cocoa trade war?

It all started with a disagreement over the price of cocoa beans. Ghana and other African producers wanted a higher price for their cocoa, while the European Union – which imports most of the world's cocoa – said that the prices were too high.

2. How has the war affected Ghana?

Ghana is one of the world's largest producers of cocoa, and the trade war has had a big impact on the country. Cocoa prices have fallen sharply, and Ghanaian farmers have been hit hard.

3. What is the latest development in the trade war?

The latest development is that Ghana has announced it will leave the Cocoa Marketing Board, which sets prices for cocoa beans. This could lead to even lower prices for Ghanaian farmers.



In a bid to process more cocoa beans domestically, Ghana is looking to produce 50% of its cocoa within the country by 2025.

This is good news for the Ghanaian economy and for the environment, as processing cocoa beans locally will reduce transportation emissions.


The Ghanaian government’s decision to produce 50% of the country’s cocoa domestically has been met with criticism from the European Union. The EU says that the move will limit cocoa exports and lead to higher prices for chocolate lovers in Europe.

Ghana says the move will help farmers get a better price for their cocoa and improve the quality of the country's cocoa beans.
