Chocolate Country

Loading...
"In the isolated hill towns of the Dominican Republic, cacao farmers have been fighting a losing battle with the global economy (and hundreds of opportunistic middlemen) for as long as anyone can remember. ?Chocolate Country? is the story of a village with a plan to turn the system on its head. Like many poor farmers, the people of Loma Guacanejo have never been able to afford herbicides or pesticides. Shifting demands in the first world are about to turn this disadvantage into an advantage. If the farmers can certify their cocoa beans ?organic?, and leverage the benefits of "Fair Trade", their product could instantly double - even triple - in value." -- Chocolate Country film website.
