Product Description

In this webinar Caroline Paul, Manager Africa at DP Survey Africa, will discuss risks and tricks associated with loading cocoa beans in containers. With approximately 70% of the world's cocoa beans coming from West African countries, various challenges need to be considered when shipping this sensitive commodity around the world:

  • natural properties of cocoa beans
  • methods to analyse and measure moisture content and other relevant parameters
  • correct packaging and storage
  • selection of suitable containers
  • transit follow up

Caroline’s presentation will consider the complete journey of cocoa beans, thereby addressing many pitfalls that should be avoided to prevent losses from occurring.
