São Tomé and Príncipe
The insular position of São Tomé and Príncipe has not prevented the development of a wide range of agricultural crops. Surprisingly, though, the Chocolate Island, as it is often called, has presently only 45,8% of its land under cultivation.
The inhabitants of São Tomé and Príncipe like to cook with palm oil, however, local production is insufficient to meet domestic demand. This has resulted in overpriced palm oil, forcing the population to reduce its daily consumption.
