Cacao-Trace contributes to a sustainable supply chain through best environmental and financial practices by placing human being at the center of development efforts. Beyond that, it is also a mark of quality. Cacao-Trace teams work closely with farmers to carefully control the fermentation and drying process, a vital step to ensuring superior cocoa beans. This support allows farmers to focus more on caring for their plantations, improving skills, productivity and quality for a win-win partnership. Farmers deliver better yields while chocolate producers are assured of higher quality beans for great tasting chocolate.
