São Tomé and Principe's cocoa revival

A century ago São Tomé and Principe was the biggest producer of cocoa in the world but it declined rapidly after independence. Things are looking up again. A co-operative, CECAQ-11, is working with the British chocolate company Divine to help reinvigorate things. The CEO of CECAQ-11, Adalberto Luis, and one of the farmers, Hortência Pina, spoke to the BBC’s Akwasi Sarpong.
