Malaysia: a country which is more of a chocolate producer than a consumer
Malaysia is part of COPAL, an association for chocolate-producing countries. Its history regarding cocoa beans goes back to the 17th and 18th centuries, with the introduction of the Amelonado variety. Starting in the middle of the 19th century, colonial governments drove the experimental cultivation of palms for oil. After World War II, encouraged by the strong international demand for cocoa beans, Malaysia continued along this path. Today, cocoa bean cultivation makes up the third-largest agricultural sector, after palm oil and rubber.
Localized cocoa production
Currently, Malaysia produces 5,000 tons of per year, which makes up about 1% of total world production. Production sites can be found in the regions of Pahang and Muar in peninsular Malaysia and in the region of Sabah in western Malaysia, north of the Sultanate of Brunei. The country has a particularly large cocoa processing industry, which also handles part of Ivory Coast’s and Ghana’s output. The goal is to reduce imports by raising national production to 60,000 tons by 2020. How? By improving technical innovations and expanding cultivation territories, whose area would increase from 450,000 to 500,000 hectares.
As in the rest of Southeast Asia, chocolate is especially popular as a gift on special occasions, so don’t hesitate to have refined Belgian chocolates delivered to you by Planète Chocolat!
