Under the 11th EDF Bi-national Programme, Caribbean Export along with its bi-national partners are pursuing the development of a Bi-national Value Chain Strategy for the Cocoa/Chocolate sector in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, in order to maximize the potential export from both countries.

As part of the Strategy, ten (10) beneficiaries from the cocoa sector in Haiti and the DR were identified, (five (5) from each country), to be part of the Value Chain Project and an individual strategy/a detailed Action Plan was prepared for each, to improve its quality and international competitiveness, including possible collaborations with other international institutions.

This consultancy has been developed in response to an immediate need for the beneficiary company Fédération des Coopératives Cacaoyères du Nord (FECCANO), which decided to adapt and take advantage of the benefits of new technologies and existing information and tools.
