Ghana and Ivory Coast want a bigger cut of world chocolate billions—why their 'CHOCPEC' tie-up could be a game changer

By Christine Mungai

ABIDJAN, Cote d’Ivoire, March 25, 2016 (AfricaCom) -- Chocolate is one of the world’s most popular sweet treats, and in 2014, the global retail sales of chocolate confectionery were nearly a staggering $100 billion.

Ivory Coast and Ghana are the world’s number one and two producers of cocoa heans, and together account for nearly 70% of the world’s cocoa production. But the two earned just over $8 billion in cocoa exports. In the global value chain for chocolate, the value is skewed heavily in favour of processors, marketers and distributor: cocoa growers receive just 6% of the price that consumers pay for chocolate. African-processed chocolate accounts for 2% of the global chocolate sales.
