Cacao-Trace launches in Papua New Guinea
After Vietnam, Ivory Coast, and the Philippines, Cacao-Trace is now also present in Papua New Guinea. The team has successfully adapted the cocoa fermentation process at 60 locally-owned post-harvest centers. The quality of the processed cocoa beans has increased significantly, resulting in chocolate with exceptional taste. The programme already proved its positive impact on the livelihoods of local communities in its first months. As a next step, the Chocolate Bonus will be implemented.
