Madagascar and chocolate: quite a story
Cocoa growing in Madagascar dates back to the early 20th century. French colonists strongly exploited the agricultural potential of the Island. Initially, the Criollo and Forastero varieties were grown, but these were then crossed to create the hybrid Trinitario variety. The latter represents 30% of Madagascar's cocoa bean production. National production has never really taken off; Madagascar only supplies the French market. Today, cocoa plantations are concentrated in an area of only 31 miles and the level of production fulfills only 1% of worldwide demand. The location of the production is found in the Ambanja District, more specifically in the Sambirano Valley.
Focus on the Sambirano area
Cocoa beans are an essential economic resource for inhabitants of the Sambirano Valley. Helped by favorable climatic conditions, local producers are increasing their production year after year. In addition, large industrial groups involved in candy and chocolate manufacturing are forming partnerships directly. Annual production has now reached 3,000 tons of high-quality cocoa beans. They boast the finest flavors and longest aftertaste, even if the fermentation process still has some deficiencies. Nevertheless, don't be surprised if you find Madagascan chocolate served or offered in prestigious establishments all over the world. The prospects for development in the Malagasy chocolate industry are very promising.
