Decolonizing Chocolate

The colonial and post colonial history of cacao is short, somewhat monochromatic and heavily skewed towards chocolate. Like other raw materials which captured the attention of colonising nations it was a story of unimaginable exploitation both in the New World plantation and the Old World factory. In the past couple of decades an emerging trend has begun to present itself and speed up. Origin countries -the nations who grow cacao have begun entering the world of chocolate making. Come and join a discussion on where this may be going, how the economics looks (from a case study in the Caribbean) and how this radical flip in global trade could set an example for other commodities.
