“Bitter bean - sweet pleasure"


Tenderly melting, chocolate sweetens the everyday life of many people. But a glance at the conditions under which cocoa is grown often spoils the taste. Forests are cleared, children have to slave away, and yet many families cannot make a living from growing cocoa.


In the exhibition "Bitter Bean - Sweet Pleasure", the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) shows how cocoa farming can become more sustainable and what role each individual plays in this.


In the virtual exhibition, you will find information about the history, origin and processing of the cocoa bean, among other things.
