One Year Old Cocoa Trees

When the Micronising Company decided to give cocoa trees for Christmas 2013 it was a decision to give hope and change the lives of struggling Indonesian cocoa farmers.

Those 600 seedlings are now one year old and well on the way to producing cocoa beans for the factories that Micronising Company support and to increasing the family incomes for cocoa farmers Tenri, Alimuddin, M Edi, and Muin and their families.

Thank you Micronising Company for deciding to help Indonesian cocoa farmers with this special Christmas gift, that will keep on giving hope and prosperity to these cocoa farming families for many years to come.

Cocoa Trees Planted

Posted on January 02, 2014 by Cocoa Care | 0 comments

December 19, 2013 was a very happy day for the 7 cocoa farmers involved in your sponsorship program as the planting of their new superior quality top grafted cocoa tree seedlings commenced. Cocoa Carer Darwis was on hand to assist with the planting to ensure the trees received the best possible start. 

These farmers have all received training and tools as a part of other Cocoa Care programs, however they need new trees to replace those that had died over the years from age trees and/or pests and diseases. New cocoa trees for these farmers means a significant improvement in their productivity which ultimately means a more sustainable and brighter future for the cocoa farming family.

As mentioned in an earlier post, your trees will begin to fruit in about 18 months and from 2016 onwards your trees should be producing up to 2kg of cocoa each year or enough to make about 2.3 kg of 70% dark chocolate, about three to four times the current average production of a “typical” cocoa tree in the world today.

We will continue to monitor the progress of your trees so please check back soon.

Thank You For Your Support

Thank you for sponsoring the replacement of 600 old dead or non-productive cocoa trees. 

Your sponsorship will provide several trained and motivated farmers with much needed superior quality, top grafting seedlings along with 12 months supply of fertilizer mix and a helping hand from a Cocoa Carer for the program duration to ensure these farmers are on the right path towards a more productive and sustainable future. 

Your trees will begin to fruit in about 18 months and from 2016 onwards your trees should be producing up to 2kg of cocoa each year or enough to make about 2.3 kg of 70% dark chocolate, about three to four times the current average production of a “typical” cocoa tree in the world today.

These 600 trees will be planted next week and we will continue to monitor the progress of your trees over the next 12 months. Photographs and updates will be posted online here so please check back again soon.
