Project Overview

Through the Procurement and Development area of Compañía Nacional de Chocolates, applied research is conducted on the cocoa–bean crops and improvements are implemented with different groups of farmers.

Project Results

The projects developed have allowed improving the yields in cocoa–bean production per hectare of up to 70% (going from 400 kg/ha to some 1.500 kg/ha), which means higher production with the same amount of water, increasing efficiency and contributing to the reduction of the indirect water footprint. Along the different projects, there have been around 10.000 families beneficiated accounting almost 13.000 hectares of cocoa plantations all around the country.
