Welcome to the International Fine Cocoa Innovation Centre (IFCIC) – which is currently being developed and which has been made possible through the partial funding of the European Union (EU) under the ACP Science & Technology Programme II, a programme implemented by the ACP Group of States. The IFCIC is the brainchild of CRC (Cocoa Research Centre) director and project co-author, Professor Pathmanathan Umaharan.

The International Fine Cocoa Innovation Centre (IFCIC) project was designed and developed to effect a step-change process in the fine cocoa sector across the Caribbean which will ensure the sustainability of this important food crop and pioneer a futuristic approach for food security in the region.
