Cocoa Farmers Tasting Chocolate for the First Time in their Lives
The Ivory Coast is the world’s largest producer and exporter of cocoa beans used in the manufacturing of chocolate. As of 2009 they supplied approximately 30% of the cocoa produced in the world [source].
Yet many of the cocoa farmers have never tasted the end result of their labour as a bar of chocolate is far too expensive for the average farmer to afford. In this video we see a number of cocoa farmers tasting chocolate for their very first time.
