Okay, I am no mathematical genius- far from it- but I can do my simple sums. So, if Africa produces 75% of the world’s cocoa then surely this great continent should be flowing with the riches, with somewhere around 75% of the revenue of the chocolate industry worth around $100 billion…. Oh but wait, this is Africa, which has constantly been pillaged and screwed over. So somehow it only comes out with 2%…

Seriously it just ain’t right and I guess it’s no real surprise.

Cocoa, coffee, rare minerals/metals, the world runs on the produce of Africa. Yet on the ground people starve, live on assistance from rich nations, endure war and corruption and worse off, African’s hardly even use any of the things they produce.
