Entering the EU market
Improving cacao quality
What can such a project look like?
If you want to develop, expand or increase the quality of a cacao producing region, then Gaia can support in that. We offer technical expertise and assistance and, together with a team of other experts, can help with the agricultural planning and practices. Knowing the demands of European buyers, and offering logistics as well, our team is well equipped to develop a model for a complete value chain.
For cacao traders:
Changing regulations and increasing needs for more sustainability, requires an approach and vision that is integrated into your company's strategy. Gaia offers guidance, communication and implementation of activities on the ground in cacao countries.
For NGO's and cooperatives:
Gaia offers coaching to cooperatives and other groups of farmers, so that they can increase their entrepreneurial capacity. We can facilitate the logistics of beans if needed and provide trainings on the ground.
We know the cacao and chocolate landscape well, being in the middle of the supply and demand side, and we can help you with a market access study. We do a competition overview and identify which buyers might be interested in your beans. This increases your chances on the European market.
