The cocoa bean is a fully fermented fatty bean that is used to make healthy and tasty foods. Every year, more than 3 million tons of cocoa are produced worldwide. Cocoa output is rising at a rate of 3% each year on average. The Netherlands, the United States, the United Kingdom, and other nations import a significant amount of cocoa to create chocolate and other edible items. Cocoa and its derivatives are utilized all over the world.

The African area produces over 2.5 million tons of cocoa, accounting for 70% of total global production. Cote d’Ivoire is the world’s greatest producer of cocoa beans, with 1.23 million tons, accounting for around 34.7 percent of global production.
