Single Origin Chocolate: Papua New Guinea
Cocoa is an extremely important export in Papua New Guinea, as 80% of such comes from smallholder farmers. This century however, the nation is dealing with managing pests, known as cocoa pod borers, to accommodate for this decline in production. Between 2008 and 2012, the country’s previously highest-producing province declined by 82%, which initiated a large focus on the issue at hand. Great progress has been made over the past few years in addressing and initiating managing this issue, as the economic and social dependence of so many farmers must be addressed in a timely fashion. Luckily, chocolatiers still select beans from this nation when available, and once tasting the natural flavor profiles, you will surely understand the desire for these beans.
