Nobili

North Kivu, Dem. Rep. of Congo

Esco Kivu pioneered cacao production in the Democratic Republic of Congo decades ago in the North Kivu province.

The region has seen tremendous growth over the years as both weather and soil have led to production of superior quality, flavorful cacao. A remarkable success story for the Eastern Congo community, the emergence of cacao production provides hope for bright future of sustainable income generation and continued growth potential. 

 

The Esco Kivu team continues to demonstrate a commitment to the wellbeing of farmers in DRC by providing them with materials and education necessary to cultivate cacao and manage income. Farmers have been provided fermentation boxes and ongoing training on topics such as farm maintenance and post-harvest techniques, social responsibility, youth education, and managerial development. This organically and sustainably grown cacao shines as leader for west African production.
