Toui: Sabaidee Caty! Caty: Sabaidee Toui! Toui: Caty, what is your favorite snack? Caty: I have lots. Potato chips and cucumber pickles are favorites. How about you? Toui: I like chocolate. Sugary delicious chocolate…. Caty: I guess you have a sweet tooth. Toui: Yes, I definitely do. Caty: Can you guess what country produces the most cocoa? Toui: Is it the US? Caty: Not even close! The answer is in this clip. Play video Ivory Coast is the world’s biggest producer of cocoa. Here too, farmers complain of falling incomes. ((Julien Kouamé Konan, Cocoa Farmer (in Baoulé) )) “We planters are poor. The Westerners who come to buy cocoa are getting rich. Meanwhile, we (farmers) are suffering. We earn nothing. We suffer cultivating the fields, that's why we ask the government to help us.” ((Narration)) The governments of Ghana and Ivory Coast signed a deal in 2021 to try to get a bigger share of the chocolate industry’s profits, by setting a minimum price and obtaining a ‘cash premium’ per ton of cocoa — which is an extra sum paid directly to farmers on top of the commercial price of cocoa. Toui: Woah. I wouldn’t have guess Ivory Coast! But, what does complain mean, Caty? Caty: It means to express displeasure or dissatisfaction. In law, a complaint is an accusation or charge. Toui: What about cultivate? Caty: It means to prepare and use land to grow crops in this story. But, you can use it more loosely. Like… Toui might want to cultivate a taste for lower-calorie foods. Toui: Very funny! The last word that threw me is “obtaining.” Caty: Simply, obtain is a verb meaning to get or to gain. The farmers want to be paid more money for their cocoa. Toui: Thanks. Now it’s time for pronunciation. Toui: That concludes our show, Caty. Thank you. Caty: You’re welcome. ບັນດາທ່ານມາຮອດນີ້ລາຍການຂອງເຮົາກໍໄດ້ໝົດແລ້ວ. ພົບກັນໃໝ່ໃນຄັ້ງຕໍ່ໄປ, ສະບາຍດີ.
