The LMC Worldwide Survey of Cocoa Production Costs report assesses cocoa production costs around the world and covers the 15 major cocoa-producing countries:
Ghana Cameroon Côte d’Ivoire Nigeria Togo
Brazil Colombia Dominican Republic Ecuador Mexico Peru Venezuela
Indonesia Malaysia Papua New Guinea
The analysis breaks costs down into the four main stages of production:
with each being further disaggregated into labour, fertiliser/chemical, capital and sundry, and administration elements.
Profitability of cocoa production in each country is determined from the cost estimates and price data and, using LMC’s cocoa price forecasts, we assess future profitability to 2020/21.
The report is divided into the following sections:
Section 1 Global Supply/Demand and Price Outlook
Section 2 Review of World Cocoa Production Costs
Section 3 – 17 Individual Country Profiles
Appendix Methodology for estimating costs and profitability
