PLANT | GROW | DREAM
3 main principles
1 - PLANT | QUALITY BEANS
We select high-quality wet beans, pre-sorted and screened by farmers and collaborate with them to train them into Cacao-Trace certified farmers, which leads to a premium quality .
Furthermore, we hire and train community members to become professional Cacao-Trace fermentation masters and make the fermentation process the best. On top we build our own post-harvest centers, the cornerstone of value creation with professional equipment with optimized wooden box fermenters.
2 - GROW | BETTER REVENUE
For the high-quality wet beans we receive from farmers, we pay quality premium: it’s an extra
income for farmers, on top of the farm gate price.
For every kg of Cacao-Trace chocolate sold, we collect €0.10/kg. We collect this money and send 100% of it back to the cocoa farmers
3 - DREAM | schools & education
In Papua New Guinea we help with building schools and classrooms to ensure good and qualitative education for children.
PROJECTS we support Papua New Guinea
School extension in Nindiwi & Negrie | Papua New Guinea

New classroom and 4 septic toilets in the Primary School Negrie
Potable water in Yangoru
& Angoram | Papua New Guinea
46 Filtrated water tanks

To source drinking water, locals walk long distances to collect drinking water from water wells/ streams and ground water.
Thanks to these water tanks, time is saved that can be used for cocoa farming and other income-generating activities.
