Market Overview

Growing expansion of chocolate confectionary business is boosting the demand for cocoa beans across the globe.

In 2015, USD 100 million was invested to distribute new seedlings among Indonesian farmers. However, these initiatives have shown limited results which are hindering the growth of global cocoa beans market.
