The good thing is that the millions of small producer are poor and have no money to buy the expensive gmo cacao, the money is with the big chocolate companies they buy 1 kg of cacao for $2 dollars and obtain retail chocolate for about $ 200 dollars, there is the money. not with the small producers, they are poor, actually cacao as a crop does not produce a profit, is only subsistance , a typical family that has 1 or 2 has, produces a yearly income of $0.60 per family member per day. there is no money for a giant monopoly to try to sell a gmo cacao tree. This is not like a USA, Brazil or Argentina highly mechanized and lots of land to farm like soybeans or maize. Cacao makes money in the chocolate factories that retail CANDY and keep the profits..
