IELTS Report on chocolate production


The given pectoral diagrams illustrate the step by step process of chocolate production.


Raw materials for producing chocolates are procured through processes like repining, harvesting, fermenting and drying, which are later used in the factory for further production. Overall, we can observe that the initial four stages are natural processes, whereas post transportation to the factory involves all machine-oriented processes. 

Body Paragraph 1

The essential raw material white cocoa beans are obtained by harvesting ripe red pods grown on cocoa trees in South America, Africa, and Indonesia. These cocoa beans are kept for fermentation, post which they are spread on a tray or stand for drying in the sun. On drying, these seeds are put in large sacks, which are later transported to the factory via train or lorry. 

Body Paragraph 2

In the factory, the beans are roasted by adjusting the temperature to 350 degree Celsius. Then, they are crushed, whereby the outer shell of the beans is removed. The inner part of the cocoa beans is put in a pressing machine with rollers, whereby liquid chocolate is produced.
