Chocolate Nations

Living and Dying for Cocoa in West Africa


From bean to barwhere does your chocolate come from? Chocolate. The very word hints of the forbidden and a taste of the decadent. Yet the story behind the chocolate bar is rarely one of luxury. From the thousands of children who work on plantations to the smallholders who harvest the beans, Chocolate Nations reveals the hard economic realities of our favourite sweet. This vivid and gripping exploration of the reasons behind farmer poverty includes the human stories of the producers and traders at the heart of the West African industry. Órla Ryan shows how only a tiny fraction of the cash we pay for a chocolate bar actually makes it back to the farmers, and she sheds light on what Fairtrade really means on the ground. Provocative and eye-opening, Chocolate Nations exposes the true story of how the treat we love makes it onto our supermarket shelves.
