Cacao (full name: Theobroma cacao ) is a small evergreen tree which means “food of the gods”. The discoverers of cocoa- the Mayans- named it as such, from the word Kak Kow , meaning “God Food.”
The tree’s seeds called cocoa beans are primarily used to make cocoa mass, cocoa powder, and chocolate. The products are distributed for food consumption and business undertakings of various sorts, branching from small households to large chocolate corporations.
For the longest time, cacao has been introduced and considered as a high-valued crop and commodity in the world market. Not only is it used for food consumption, but it also exhibits great potential for business and market profit.
