Brazil: production of cocoa beans 2012-2020

The production of cocoa beans in Brazil has oscillated in recent years, reaching up to 230 thousand metric tons in market year 2014/2015. In the 2019/2020 season, the South American country was expected to produce approximately 190 thousand tons of cocoa beans, an increase of nearly eight percent in comparison to the previous year.

Cultivation and market value

More than 580 thousand hectares planted with cocoa were harvested in Brazil in 2019, and the production value of this crop amounted to more than 2.5 billion Brazilian reals. Cocoa or cocoa beans are the primary ingredient in the production of chocolate and other cacao-derived products. The cocoa, chocolate, and candies sector in Brazil generated a net revenue of nearly 17 billion Brazilian reals that same year.

Cocoa around the world

The origins of cocoa can be traced back to Latin America, as the cocoa tree is endemic to Central and South America and some parts of Mexico. Nowadays more than three quarters of cocoa production worldwide is concentrated in the African continent. Nonetheless, South America still plays a role in the global market, with Ecuador ranking as the third largest cocoa producer, and Brazil ranking among the top seven.
