Photo: Examining cocoa beans is always a pleasure

Whenever I am working in Democratic Republic of Congo, I always link up with this caco producer and exporter. They are extremely focused on helping the farmers achieve good quality organic cocoa, as this will get them a better price. They havemany depots around North Kivu Province, and I am always happy to visit there stores and check on the quality, and watch for any impending diseases, particularly during the rainy season, when fungus can affect drying beans
