Rakiraki Processing Center
Market access for rural small holder cocoa farmers from Rakiraki to Tailevu
Central Fermenation and Drying
Market Access for All Cocoa Farmers
Cacaofiji was started after observing that the Rakiraki farmers lacked a consistent market access . This is was due to poor quality of beans due to improper processing. Therefore, we embarked and set up a central processing station in Nunukoloa, RA and provide market access to all farmers by buying wet cocoa beans.
Smallholder Cocoa Farmers
Future of Fiji's cocoa industry
We work with smallholder cocoa farmers in rural areas by providing market access and technical support to increase income and impact livelyhoods. We buy from farmers in areas of high poverty and high unemployment , encourage farmers to maintain and do new planting of cocoa that minimizes environmental impact.
We look to impact the cocoa farmers in the following areas:
Increase their incomes, improve food security via intercropping and strengthen their resilience via ongoing support systems.
