When I was in Ghana, Cord Budde invited me to come and visit his chocolate factory.
Cord's family have been making chocolate for more than 100 years and now he is one of the biggest manufacturers of fair trade chocolate in Europe.
I had seen the cocoa on the trees and I had seen how they harvest it, ferment it and pack it in bags.
Now, I wanted to see it being turned into the yummy chocolate that I (and I'm sure other people) love.
Making new friends
We flew to a town called Hanover, and Cord's wife, Kristina met and drove us 100 km to where they live - a town called Herford.
We were introduced to the family, but it was quite strange because neither me nor my brother speak any German and none of Cord's children spoke any English.
