From the fine cocoa bean of the cocoa crop are derived numerous food, drink and health derivative products supplying a global industry worth over US$60 billion.

The IFCIC Centre is being established to promote the future evolution of the local fine cocoa sector by providing support – technical, business and logistical – to small businesses (SME’s) which form part of the present or future value-add supply chain in the industry.

Manufactured outputs from the Chocolate Factory will include finished and semi-finished products – such as cocoa paste, cocoa butter, cocoa powder, couverture, baking chocolate amongst others.
