Caribbean Fine Cocoa Industry

For Release Upon Receipt - Thursday, March 26, 2015

The Cocoa Research Centre (CRC) at The University of the West Indies has embarked on a three-year project that will transform the fine cocoa sector across the Caribbean region, ensuring the sustainability of Caribbean cocoa and pioneering a model for regional food crop security.

Dubbed the International Fine Cocoa Innovation Centre (IFCIC), the project was conceptualised by the CRC and its partners, Newer Worlds, Caribbean Fine Cocoa Forum, Cocoa Industry Board of Jamaica and funded by a €2 million grant from the European Union under the ACP Science and Technology Programme II. The launch of the IFCIC was the highlight of a two-day conference hosted by the CRC on March 23rd and 24th, 2015.
