France lowered duties and proclaimed free trade within the French empire in 1791, qualified in 1793 by the obligation to use French ships. However, French colonies were wracked with violence from 1791, and then blockaded or occupied by Britain from 1793 (Blérald 1986:39). TAXATION, REGULATION AND WAR 29 Britain discriminated much more than France against ‘the inferior planters’ of secondary crops (Smith 1996:203–6). 5 per cent export duty, current in the old colonies, was unlawful in the islands ceded to Britain in 1763, which produced almost all the British Caribbean’s cocoa at this time.

About two thirds of Brazilian cocoa was re-exported from Lisbon, mainly to Italy (Alden 1976:130). Genoa, and to a lesser extent Livorno, were the main importers (Niephaus 1975: 277–344). Following defeat at the hands of Britain in 1763, the French adopted the exclusif mitigé, or moderate colonial pact (Tarrade 1972). Falling rates of taxation and the opening of more French ports greatly improved the onerous conditions earlier imposed on cocoa (Boyer-Peyreleau 1823:II, 40, app. 13). Taxes on colonial cocoa entering France had fallen to 10 centimes per livre by 1775, and cocoa exports from Saint-Domingue were entirely free of duty by 1791 (Mangin 1860:44; Edwards 1801:215).

The Dutch had a more significant cocoa sector of their own, but were also keen to re-export beans from other colonies, legally or illegally. Saint Eustatius thus joined Curaçao as an entrepot for re-exported cocoa (Klooster 1998:226–7). At the same time, cocoa grown in the Dutch section of the Guianas continued to be directed exclusively to the Netherlands (Goslinga 1985:39–40, 574–607). The impact of war and revolution, 1790s–1820s A new kind of conflict engulfed the world cocoa economy from 1793, lasting to 1815 in Europe, and to 1824 in Latin America.
