Event Description:
The School of Science at North Campus will host its
annual Hispanic Heritage Month event where Osmán
Gutiérrez from USDA Agricultural Research Services
(ARS) will be speaking about the future of cocoa.
Chocolate is increasingly popular and under assault
from diseases that infect cocoa plants. Scientists
are working to find varieties that will resist diseases
and keep the world’s sweet tooth happy. The world is
facing a chocolate shortage. Demand for chocolate
is rising fast, especially in China and India, and the
supply of cocoa is declining. In fact, demand is
expected to outpace supply within a few years. Now
the U.S. government is teaming up with the private
sector to try to stave off a cocoa crisis.
Hosted by Silvio Parodi.
