Exporting semi-finished cocoa products to Europe
Processing of cocoa beans at origin is a highly-debated topic on the European chocolate market. Although the manufacturing of semi-finished cocoa products is interesting from the perspective of developing countries, the European market for this type of local value addition is still limited. Developing and exporting locally processed cocoa products requires you to have proper quality management, documentation, long-term commitment and close cooperation with European companies. Unique products of excellent quality are most likely to succeed on the European market, mainly in the chocolate industry.
