Global cocoa production, currently based primarily on small-scale operations, does notenable the agrifood industry to secure supplies with consistent quality and quantities. KKO INTERNATIONAL, a pioneer for intensive cultivation, offers an ingenious solution to growing global demand. In less than three years, the teams at SOLEA, KKO INTERNATIONAL’s Ivory Coast-based production subsidiary, have successfully developed innovative agronomic techniques, including a drip irrigation system for each tree, significantly improving cocoa bean production yields. With its strong local engagement, the company is a model for social responsibility (Rainforest Alliance certified) and has 2,580 hectares of land (leases signed) at June 30, 2018, on which 800,000 fully irrigated cocoa trees are planted. It aims to have 1,500,000 trees planted and irrigated by the end of 2019. Africa’s largest cocoa plantation, SOLEA aims to have 3,000 hectares in operation to produce high-quality cocoa whatever the season. SOLEA aims to become a natural, preferred partner for the chocolate industry.
