Swedish NGO to help revive cocoa industry

Moves are underway to revive the cocoa industry in Tailevu with the aid of a Swedish non-government organisation.

The province has embarked on an exchange project with Cocoa Bello, a Swedish NGO, to help farmers in the province cultivate cocoa.

The Tailevu Province Cocoa Growers and Producers Cooperative Association said the exchange project was aimed at increasing exports in the industry which has been in decline since the early 90s.

The exchange project aims to create a greater understanding of the need for sustainable cocoa cultivation and fair trade within the cocoa industry.

As part of the exchange project, people from the Swedish NGO would spend two weeks with farmers in Tailevu to develop technology. Farmers will also go to Sweden with the cocoa used by Sweden to make chocolate.
