Chocolate in trouble
How would you feel if we told you that in twenty years’ time there will be no chocolate left? The main ingredient in chocolate is cocoa, from the Theobroma cocoa tree, but many cocoa plantations are disappearing, as farmers swap to more lucrative crops. UTZ is a company devoted to sustainable farming and they are working closely with cocoa farmers in Ghana to increase their income, improve their livelihoods and ensure long-term sustainable harvest of cocoa. Woolworths has partnered with UTZ to preserve chocolate for the future. I visited one of Ghana’s sustainable cocoa operations to find out how we can keep chocolate around for years to come!
