Jeune garçon faisant sécher des fêves de cacao au Vénézuela Le cacao (du nahuatl cacahuatl qui désigne les fèves du cacaoyer[1]) est la poudre obtenue après torréfaction et broyage de l'amande des fèves de cacao fermentées produites par le cacaoyer. Cette opération permet également d'extraire la graisse que l'on appelle beurre de cacao. 95 % de la production mondiale de cacao provient d'une agriculture familiale paysanne vivant de un à trois hectares de plantation de cacaoyers. Histoire[modifier | modifier le code] Le cacao dont le nom vient du nahuatl «cacahuatl» [2]était traditionnellement utilisé par les populations méso-américaines, notamment par les Mayas puis par les Aztèques.

Les Espagnols, qui rencontrèrent par hasard pour la première fois le cacao (appelé « théobroma cacao », théobroma signifiant en grec "nourriture des dieux") dans les Caraïbes en 1495, ne fixèrent leur attention sur la fève qu'à partir de la conquête du Mexique.

Unsweetened baking chocolate (bitter chocolate) contains primarily cocoa solids and cocoa butter in varying proportions.

In many places, with more and also more aggressive extreme events and higher climate variability as well, this becomes worse. Indeed, it appears as if in quite some places the vulnerability of cocoa production to adverse climatic conditions will be exacerbated (e.g. Anim-Kwapong and Frimpong, 2005). Definitely, that is, if no or too little action is taken. Kees StigterAgromet Vision (Bondowoso, Indonesia and Bruchem, The Netherlands) [] Introduction Trees store much of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide and therefore also cocoa trees can mitigate global warming (Sommariba, 2006). Reading the literature on cocoa production, with only few exceptions the industry has very often been paralysed by insustainability from a series of causes (e.g. There are many angles from which cocoa production can be seen.
