Planting and care

In Australia, Cadbury uses high quality cocoa beans sourced from Ghana in West Africa and Asia. Most of the world s cocoa is grown in a narrow belt 10 degrees either side of the Equator because cocoa trees grow well in humid tropical climates with regular rains and a short dry season.

Caring for Cocoa

    Ghana and Cote Ivoire supply 60% of the worlds cocoa and 90% of production is on small farms of 2 to 5 hectares. Despite significant growth in cocoa output and trade, many farmers and their communities still live on less than pound1 a day.Cocoa farming is demanding, labour-intensive work, and with volatile prices producers dont earn enough to pay for essentials such as farm inputs or school fees.

Typical uses of Cocoa

Ornamental use: The plant is used for ornamental purpose. Its generally kep indoor in living room and in terrac area.
