COFINA S.A. the largest and most important exporter of semi-finished cocoa in Ecuador is our premium and important supplier of raw material.
Due to our partnership and through the CACAO NATIVO project, we are committed to develop and achieve the following five goals:
Preserve and promote the planting and production of Cacao.
Integrate all the Cacao producers to the project.
Train and qualify all cocoa farmers who are project members.
Improve and take care of the cocoa farmers living conditions and their families.
Guarantee that 100% of our Cacao becomes certified and with the best and highest quality.
Constant training and field trip days are organized with the cocoa farmers who are members of the Native Cacao project, to enhance their knowledge in harvesting, post-harvest, physical, sensory analysis, organic agriculture, good agricultural practices, among others. Also, to involve them in the production of the best quality cocoa.
We train our associated cocoa farmers with correct cultural tasks such as training pruning and plant protection to prevent the incidence of plant pathogens in the plantation. With our Native Cacao project, we carry out technical visits to all our producers to monitor and develop the cultural work of crops, in an optimal way.
