  • FOOD: Chocolate’s biographer reveals its tasty secrets  | American Indian News Service
    do it through the sustainable tree program Since June 6 2006 we have been sequencing the cacao genome The findings are being put in the public domain and they won t be able to be patented That is unique in the world of agricultural research Briggs What does this mean for cacao farmers who as we ve said are indigenous from many regions of the world and who are small farmers who eke out a living from this globally traded fragile crop Shapiro In modern times we assumed there were only three genetic structures of the cacao tree Over the centuries people bred these and didn t make other selections Over the last 15 months we discovered that there are 10 genetic structures of the cacao and there is a potential to add to the gene pool All those things point to the potential to strengthen this fragile tree that is cultivated by indigenous people around the world but is linked to the GNPs gross national product of countries It is 30 percent of the GNP of the Ivory Coast and 20 percent of the GNP of Ghana It is more valuable in modern times than gold and it is dependant on 6 5 million small farmers around the world working an average of 2 5 hectares about 6 acres of land each Briggs Mars Incorporated is the largest buyer of cacao beans in the world and since 2002 it has set a goal of buying cacao beans which have been certified to have been grown using best practices Shapiro When we started there were probably only 20 000 metric tons of sustainably grown cacao beans available globally Now there are probably over one million metric tons that you would call certifiable Mars is forming a coalition of the largest chocolate companies and with these partnerships it is likely that the idea of sustainability will soon sweep the chocolate world The result that farmers will have better yield and better productivity matched with the social issues is amazing to consider A farmer should be able to triple his yield with good agronomy and to get out of the kind of marginal life we imagine in North Africa With a triple yield the farmer should be able to get out of the poverty cycle Briggs Does chocolate which began in its earliest known use as a sacred plant still carry some of that importance even in other cultures I ask considering the deep feelings that people express through the giving of chocolate Shapiro In Central Sulawesi a state in Indonesia in a town that has been built largely on the success of cacao farming there is a statue a set of hands 18 to 20 feet high which hold a giant cacao pod I ve seen metaphors like that on different scales everywhere Chocolate is one of the great stories of the world Unlike corn or wheat that can be grown on a large scale cacao will always be a crop
