The cocoa industry is the most unbalanced and also the most archaic, displaying the worst performance in terms of yield growth/HA among all major categories of commodities. Such low productivity is mainly due to the total absence of innovation, lack of integration of a scientific approach, inadequate horticultural practices coupled with unprofessional management.

KKO International has set itself the objective of implementing a cocoa production protocol that is focused on improving productivity in terms of yield per HA by concentrating on augmenting the yield in KG per tree. The aim is to produce 4/5MT per HA per year, equivalent to 3KG of dry beans per tree/year.
