These products will be available on a commercial basis as inputs to the SME’s at the Business Incubator to make finished products for local sale and export.

The SME Incubatees tenanted at the IFCIC Business Incubator will benefit from support on site from commercial services provided by the University and its project partners. This will guide these companies through the risky first phase of business growth and they will then spin out to make way for future start-up businesses to be located at the facility.

In keeping with the Science, Technology and Innovation philosophy of the Centre the SME’s will also be supported in the know-how of innovating new products and services derived from the indigenous fine cocoa sector.
