Haiti - Agriculture : The Haitian Cocoa recognized as one of the Best in the World
Christophe Chauveau, director of cooperative programs at AVSF (Agronomists and Veterinarians Without Borders) stresses "In a few years we have gone from a low cocoa quality, purchased at low cost by large intermediaries, to a high-quality cocoa, a vintage sought by French chocolatiers. The recent selection of the cocoa FECCANO [Haitian cooperative of producer] at International Cocoa Awards makes proud all smallholder cooperative and encourages them to continue the work towards greater quality and equity."
To achieve this, AVSF and its two partners, the Haitian farmers cooperative FECCANO and French cooperative of fair trade "ETHIQUABLE", working together for several years for small cocoa producers can live with dignity of their work, while producing a high quality product. The producers were trained in the fermentation of cocoa, a fundamental step to reveal its subtle aromas.
