Cacao Origin - Dominican Republic

The CONACADO co-opertive began as a development project in 1985 during a
low in the global cocoa market, to study how cacao fermentation techniques could
improve the quality of cacao production in the Dominican Republic.
After successfully proving that higher quality, fermented cacao could increase
income to small farmers, CONACADO expanded its work to educate cacao
farmers and organize them into "bloques" – associations of farmers in a particular
geographic area.

Over the past 20 years, CONACADO has grown from 700 members organized
in 3 bloques, to over 9,500 members organized in 9 bloques with 142 local
community associations throughout the Dominican Republic.

Prior to the formation of CONACADO, 100% of Dominican cacao production
was low quality unfermented beans shipped mainly to the United States.
Today, CONACADO members produce approximately 25% of the cacao
exported from the Dominican Republic and the organization has become a
powerful alternative for small-scale producers. The co-operative's success in
quality improvement and marketing means that 70% of their cacao is sold as high
quality fermented beans, primarily to European niche markets: Organic,
Biodynamic, and Fair Trade.

The biggest challenges facing CONACADO today are the development of
infrastructure to produce more high quality cacao and generational turnover
