The first building block of a chocolate bar, a chocolate cake, or a brownie is the cocoa plant, which is mainly grown in West Africa. The second is the farmers who grow it. CropLife International trained cocoa farmers in Ghana to manage pests responsibly and sustainably so their crop can thrive. Agnes Quaye, a cocoa farmer, talks about the reality of growing cocoa.
