    Providing opportunities in rural areas with high unemployment and high poverty

    The Matasawalevu Project was one of the largest and most successfull producing approx 100 MT before the decline of the industry by 1987. Cacaofiji maintains some of the blocks whilst working with small holder farmers in the Noth.

    At the height of the market, Fiji had over 3000 farmers and approx 3000 hectares of cocoa farms. Some of these were major projects whilst others were small holder cocoa farmers.
