Cocoa Symposium: Quality in postharvest: the key to the generation of added value in cocoa

Countries of our region are characterized by the production of fine flavour cocoa that allows obtaining products of high value recognized worldwide. However, the generation of value-added products from cocoa in Latin America is minimal.  In fact, European countries are leaders in this market. In addition, the quality of post-harvest processes is often underestimated.  Hence, it affects the flavor of the final products.

The aim of this symposium is to show the global trends related to post-harvest quality of cocoa to promote the generation of value-added products. The symposium will feature world-class experts from Belgium, United States, Colombia, Trinidad, Ecuador, among others.
