Chocolate by reece

  1. 1. By Reece Gibson
  2. 2. <ul><li>The first stage in turning cacao into chocolate candy requires humans, not machines. Farmers must harvest pods and prepare seeds for shipment by hand. This labor-intensive process is long and difficult, but necessary to turn this rainforest plant into chocolate. Because it takes so many people to raise and harvest cacao, labor issues have historically been a serious concern for cacao growers. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>The second stage in turning cacao into chocolate takes place when farmers sell their crops through the Coffee, Sugar, and Cocoa Exchange. Like many agricultural products, cacao is traded on the futures market. People—candy manufacturers, cocoa importers, exporters, and representatives of trade houses—buy and sell contracts for cacao crops before they are even harvested! This is different from cash markets where the actual commodity, or product, is bought and sold. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>The third stage in turning cacao into chocolate takes place on the factory floor. Once the manufacturers receive a shipment of seeds, they quickly begin the lengthy task of processing the cacao into chocolate. Through this process, cacao seeds are transformed into chocolates and other cocoa products. Advertising ensures that these products will catch the public eye. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Most brands have a competition to make the biggest chocolate bar. </li></ul>
