Even though the ecosystems and climate of Tanzania are different from the rainforest landscapes where cacao naturally grows, cocoa has adapted and thrived in these conditions. About 80% of the country’s production comes from the Mbeya Region in the vicinity of Lake Nyasa. This cacao comes from farmers in the valley region of Kilombero who process their cacao themselves. Farmers traditionally grow cacao along with banana trees and other crops mainly without any pesticides. The beans are fermented locally in banana leaf lined boxes and then placed on mats or patios to dry in the sun.
