Chocolate from Togo, a touch of independence for Togo.
In Togo, about 60% of the population live in poverty, cocoa farmers are getting lower prices, they are dependent on the buyers, but they do not know that the "gold Togos" is growing on their own farm.
"Komi Agbokou" goes from village to village to ensure a new future for his country through chocolate production.
He says that when we launched the chocolate production plan, many people didn't believe us. Most of them made fun of us. People said we were crazy.

"Komi Agbokou" was trained in Italy and is a chocolate manufacturer and activist.
He returned to Togo with his mission to get his compatriots to turn their cocoa into the "gold of Togo, chocolate".
Komi explains that the price of cocoa is determined by "those who convert cocoa," which urges local farmers to sell their products at ever-lower prices, making cocoa trees and fruits "dead wood."
On his 600 km journey from north to south Togo, Komi struggles to change this, explaining to the small farmers the value of their products.
