What are the problems cocoa farmers face?

Price of cocoa keeps going up and down on the world market = no long term security

Very low pay: farmers only receive a fraction of the price paid for each chocolate bar

Farming equipment, food, medicine etc are very expensive

Changing to produce other crops is difficult

Scales are often ‘fixed’ to show a higher reading than is true

Children often have to work to bring in extra income for farming families

Machetes and pesticides can be very dangerous.
