Consumer and health product firm Johnson & Johnson said Monday that it expects to take a charge of about USD 100 million in the first quarter due to Venezuela's currency devaluation.

J & J said that the charge is equivalent to about four cents per share and will not hit the company's estimated income in 2013 (USD 5.36-5.45 per share), Reuters informed.

Early in February, Venezuela devaluated the bolivar from VEB 4.30 to VEB 6.30 per US dollar. This is the country's fifth devaluation in 10 years.

Often times heralded as "the best cocoa in the world," a passion for quality dating back to the sixteenth century has made Venezuelan cocoa growers to enjoy high prestige at international level and their product to be among the most sought-after in the world.
