The Democratic Republic of Sao Tome and Principe is an island country in the Gulf of Guinea, off the western equatorial coast of central Africa. It is the second smallest African sovereign state, and consists of two archipelagos around the two main islands, about 150 km apart. About 100 years ago, this twin-island nation was the biggest producer of chocolate in the world. Now several producers are seeking to revitalize the trade.
