When the cocoa pods are bright yellow, they are picked off the trees. </li></ul><ul><li>They then wrap them in banana leaves and left to ferment in the shade. This gives it the chocolaty taste. </li></ul><ul><li>Once the beans are dry, farmers put them in sacks and take them to the kuapa kokoo recorder. </li></ul><ul><li>The beans are weighed and they are paid. Fairtrade buys the cocoa beans from them for a fair price. The fairtrade labelling organisation sets the fair price for about £56 per sack of cocoa. </li></ul><ul><li>The cocoa beans go through the process of roasting and winnowing to get rid of their shells. They can now be turned into cocoa butter and cocoa liquor. </li></ul>
