Ivory Coast has opened its first large-scale chocolate factory. President Alassane Ouattara inaugurated the 7 million dollar plant on the outskirt of Abidjan. Our African editor Richard Hamilton reports. “Inaugurating the factory, President Alassane Ouattara said it would help the world's top producer of coco become the world's largest producer of chocolate. Most of Ivory Coast coco is exported in its raw bean form, and then turned into fancy chocolate in factories in Europe. But with economic downturn there, consumption is declining. So the French firm Samwa that built the factory is hoping to target West Africa's growing middle class consumer markets, and says the customers, those actually eating the chocolate, will be Ivorians and West Africans.” World News from the BBC.
