Cooperative's project: creating the country's first organic cocoa and encouraging the emergence of small farmers' terroir

For many years, the Ivory Coast has been driven by the sole objective of being the world’s leading supplier of cocoa (33%). It has focussed on the mass market and has therefore accorded priority to low price, low quality cocoa produced by intensive plantation farming using salaried workers. Cocoa farming is the main focus of the economic and political challenges which have a huge impact on the farmers’ living conditions. Ethiquable has been working with the SCEB since 2010. This project has also been supported by a local NGO. This is the first Ivorian cocoa cooperative in which the producers have all been awarded organic certification and whose beans are traceable from the cooperative to the bar of chocolate. The price paid for their products is considerably higher than the national rate and this enables them to make investments to produce real quality beans and generate a real added value for their product. The volumes of the collections have multiplied eightfold in 7 years.

Terroir

The cocoa beans come from the village of the M’Brimbo producers. They produce an intensely chocolatey cocoa.

Natural environment

Equatorial forest which has been cultivated for 50 years Plantation with no or very little forest cover.

Varieties

Lower Amazon Amelonados Forasteros hybrids.

Know-how

Five days heap fermentation on banana leaves on the small plots.

 

In Ivory Coast, cocoa is at the center of major issues.
However, 64 producers are inventing a new model with the support of ETHIQUABLE. It is the first Ivorian organic cocoa cooperative.
With a fair price, this land offers a great vintage with an intense chocolate taste.
