Nigeria, more of a producer than a consumer of chocolate
Chocolate is not one of the ingredients in Nigerian cooking. Despite that, Nigeria still has a very strong link with the product since it is the fourth-larges cocoa producer in the world. Production reaches 250.000 tons, which is 12% of the worldwide total. Cocoa trees are cultivated mostly around the town of Ibadan in the southeast of the country, as well as a region in eastern Nigeria, which borders Cameroon. The two countries share this area of production.
A level of production that should double in 10 years
Nigeria has the ambition to surpass the worldwide leaders in cocoa production, which are the Ivory Coast and Ghana. The goal is to reach an annual production of around 500,000 tons, which is double what it is now. To get there, the country can benefit from its large areas of agricultural land, policies supporting the sector and a favorable climate for cocoa cultivation. Finally, the Nigerian chocolate industry relies on seeds for cacao hybrids that take between two and three years to ripen, unlike the five years it traditionally takes.
Chocolate lovers: a limited group
As was said previously, the cocoa bean provides support for a number of villages in Nigeria, but chocolate itself is nonexistent as a product, especially in artisanal form. The chocolate processing industry is also located outside of the country's borders and Nigerians can only buy industrial chocolate, marketed by large agri-food corporations. If you find yourself in Nigeria, become an ambassador for Belgian chocolate by relying on the products and delivery service of Planète Chocolat.
