Virtual B2B meetings: Fine flavour cacao & chocolate from Central America


Are you interested in discovering new sourcing regions? The Centre for the Promotion of Imports from developing countries (CBI) connects you with reliable, high-quality suppliers prepared to do business with a European partner. With the Connecting Central America project, CBI helps SMEs and cooperatives become more competitive in the European market. The European Union co-finances this project. SIECA coordinates it.

Many trade fairs and events have been cancelled due to COVID-19. For this reason, CBI now helps you virtually meet carefully selected fine flavour cacao and chocolate producers and exporters from Central America.

Meet quality suppliers from Central America

The Connecting Central America project presents cooperatives and private companies from:

  • El Salvador;
  • Guatemala;
  • Nicaragua; and
  • Costa Rica.

All participants focus on sustainability and social commitment. Participants offer products such as fine and aroma cocoa. Some of these products have organic certification. Some companies also process and offer fine flavour cacao derivatives, such as nibs, liquor and couverture.

For more information about the companies you can meet virtually, have a look at our virtual brochure (PDF).
