General Note:
In Trinidad and Tobago, cocoa production is monitored by the Cocoa and Coffee Industry Board, which was established in 1961. Cocoa, used to make chocolate, is a traditional export crop in the country. Buildings like those pictured would be used for processing, drying, sorting, and storing cocoa beans. In this image, several children and adults can be found in the yard near buildings on the cocoa plantation. The buildings are made with wood and have zinc paneled roofs, some of the steps are made of concrete. The level flat area between the buildings on the far right would be used to dry cocoa beans. The beans would be spread out evenly on this area, then raked and turned so that beans were exposed to the sun for adequate drying. Slide labeled Cocoa Plantation Trinidad.
