Ghana Is known For Chocolate!

 Heidi Johnson, our US visitor to the MTC reminds us of how much we love chocolate!

Cocoa is the chief agricultural export of  Ghana and the country's main cash crop. Behind  the Ivory Coast,  Ghana is the second largest cocoa exporter in the world. Cocoa cultivation is not native to the country; Ghana's cocoa cultivation, however, is noted within the developing world to be one of the most modeled commodities.  Cocoa has a long production cycle, far longer than many other tropical crops, and new hybrid varieties need over five years to come into production, and a further 10 to 15 years for the tree to reach its full bearing potential
