Manufacturers and exporters of cocoa will meet in Tegucigalpa on October 1 to discuss issues of interest to the sector, including new techniques to improve the genetic quality of the grain.
Providing updated knowledge in the field of genetics, strategies for germplasm conservation and new mechanisms to enhance the organoleptic analysis of mixtures of clones grown in different regions around the country are part of the themes to be addressed at the Seventh National Forum of Cocoa organized by the Cocoa Producers Association of Honduras (Aprocacaho).
Costa Rica wants to join the international organization in order to create a genetic map of the varieties that are planted in the country, and obtain a quality certification.
The Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MAG), is promoting the inclusion of Costa Rica into the International Cocoa Organization (ICCO), which will bring great benefits to the sector, for example, mapping all genetic varieties of cocoa in the country and determining denominations of origin and organoleptic qualities that will allow producers to certify that the Costa Rican cacao is "fine" quality and get higher prices in the international market.
