A little bit of geography



This is a map I found on the CocoaPlan website. I wanted to use it here to show where cocoa is produced in the world. Apparently, it is not just in Central America. This amazing trade is practiced in Western Africa and South East Asia too. Two African countries in particular are responsible for over half of the world's cocoa production, Cote d' Ivoire and Ghana. The total number of cocoa producing countries in the world are 33 and they are:

1. Mexico
2. Costa Rica
3. Panama
4. Jamaica
5. Cuba
6. Haiti
7. Dominican Republic
8. Grenada
9. Trinidad & Tobago
10.Venezuela
11.Colombia
12.Ecuador
13.Peru
14.Brazil
15.Sierra Leone
16.Ivory Coast
17.Ghana
18.Toga
19.Nigeria
20.Cameroon
21.Equatorial Guinea
22.Gabon
23.Fernando Po
24.Sao Tome
25.Congo
26.Sri Lanka
27.Malaysia
28.Sabah
29.Indonesia
30.Philippines
31.Papua Nea Guinea
32.Fiji islands
33.West Samoa

Hey! What happened to Europe? :-(
