10. Dominican Republic - 68,021 tonnes

The Dominican Republic is a world leader in chocolate, leading the charge for environmentally sustainable production. Their ethical approach to producing chocolate is strengthened by being a ‘Fairtrade Certified’ country, producing products that have been checked by global trade organisations to make sure farmers receive appropriate compensation for their crops. The Dominican Republic creates two very distinct types of cocoa, the buttery Sanchez beans and the drier Hispaniola bean.
