Chocolate danger: Ghana’s cocoa output hit hard by dry, hot winds

Overly dry and hot winds in West Africa are damaging prospects for cocoa output for the second year in Ghana, the world’s second-largest producer, sources told Reuters News Agency.

Cocoa futures on Intercontinental Exchange are near their highest in three years, driven in part by the adverse weather, which has also damaged the crop in neighbouring Ivory Coast, the world’s top cocoa producer.
