Europe is the biggest player in the cocoa sector, representing more than half of global cocoa bean imports.
About 70 persent of the global cocoa production originates from Africa, mainly West Africa. The EAC Partner States are not among the large producers on a global perspective, but there is great potential.

Nearly 90 persent of cocoa is produced by small scale farmers, thus it is a sector with high employment and poverty reducing opportunities.
