Cocoa producers are struggling to keep up with demand as sales of chocolate grow in Asia and the Middle East, pushing up prices.

A record $117bn of chocolate is expected to be sold worldwide next year, with cocoa trading at over $2700 per tonne in New York.

That makes it one of the world's fastest rising commodities.
