FT: Crisis in euro area brings down cocoa price
The present debt crisis in euro area contributes to a fall of prices of cocoa bean whose price has decreased by more than 40 percents since the last year´s maximum and it is lowermost from the end of 2008.

Europe shares in the worldwide cocoa consumption roughly by 40 %, nevertheless, Flury warns that after the financial crisis in 2008 the cocoa consumption decrease in both Europe and the USA.
