Haiti: a cocoa bean producing country
Cocoa is an important agricultural commodity in Haiti and has turned out to be an issue that is both environmental and socioeconomic. It's true that national production remains limited, reaching 7,500 tons per year. In 2011, the statistical data showed that cocoa made up 28% of Haiti's total agricultural exports. The value of these exports was 7 million dollars. The varieties produced are principally the Criollo and Trinitario, famous for their delicate and aromatic fragrances. However, the industry remains fragile. During the 2000s, the percentage of cocoa in Haiti's exports decreased, going from 3% to less than 1%. As a response, the Fédération des Coopératives Cacaoyères du Nord (Federation of Northern Cocoa Cooperatives) was created in 2008. This organization brings together 2,000 members, representing an annual production of 680 tons. Exchanges where then set up with experts from Peru, but for now Haiti remains a country with a moderate production of cocoa beans.
A chocolate that's 100% Haitian
During the 2013 Paris Salon du Chocolat, Haitian chocolate was celebrated, with attendees going to conferences, tasting sessions and shows from Haitian artists. A chocolate that was 100% locally produced was even shown. Its distinctive qualities gave it a particularly fruity and chocolaty character for a 72% dark chocolate. Fair trade and organic, the product benefits from excellent climactic conditions: crops are swept by winds coming from the ocean and humidity trapped by the surrounding landscape. You might want to take the opportunity to send some artisanal Belgian chocolate to Haiti to discover their equally delicious flavors.
