First taste of chocolate in Ivory Coast


This short video report on the Ivory Coast looks at the life of small-famers working in the cultivation of cocoa but has never tasted chocolate, which is produced from cocoa mainly in developed countries.

Farmer N’Da Alphonse grows cocao and has never seen the finished product.

“To be honest I do not know what they make of my beans,” says farmer N’Da Alphonse. “I’ve heard they’re used as flavoring in cooking, but I’ve never seen it. I do not even know if it’s true.”
