Cocoa Center of Excellence


Barry Callebaut inaugurated its Cocoa Center of Excellence in Pacobo, Côte d’Ivoire, in July 2013.

Cocoa Center of Excellence

The center has taught 96 trainers and cooperative managers last year. The cocoa training curriculum includes modules on good agricultural practices, post-harvest management techniques, optimal use of inputs, crop diversification, farm rehabilitation and grafting, as well as basic business skills.

In addition to the training facility, the center has a model farm to demonstrate optimal farm management practices, including advanced techniques for increasing crop yields and quality.
