Since 2008, GEBANA has been working alongside Procab SCOOPS to develop organic cocoa bean production by providing technical support and support to the organization.
Started with several tests and as many sensitizations, it was not until 2011 to reach a conclusive test of 3 tons. As shown in the table below, we have been able to respond to the many challenges and until then have experienced continual growth. Our areas are now extensive and we expect a harvest of more than 400 MT for 2018. In the long term, we aim for a sustainable increase of organic-fair trade cocoa production through the development of integrated farming systems that offer guarantees of sustainability and therefore a certain future for the further promotion of organic and fairtrade production.
Volume quantities have steadily increased for the past 7 years up to 236 MT and are expected to reach 400 MT in 2018.
