Author Steven Wallace will discuss his book "Obroni and the Chocolate Factory: An Unlikely Story of Globalization and Ghana’s First Gourmet Chocolate Bar."

Founded in 1991, the Omanhene Cocoa Bean Company pioneered the marketing and export of single-bean, bean-to-bar chocolate and cocoa products manufactured entirely on the African continent.
