Cacao Fiji Wins Silver At Pacific Awards

"They are seeing some great re­sults after a decade of hard work. High yielding varieties are iden­tified and cloned via grafting. Co­coa trees are fruiting in 18 months and with the study of genes, it is a great combination of high yield­ing fruits with flavor and aroma."

Cacao Fiji was awarded silver during the inaugural 2022 South Pacific Excel­lence Award in Adelaide, Aus­tralia.

The three-day event provided a platform for cocoa farmers to showcase their work to the Aus­tralian consumers and inter­national markets and study the genomic profile of the South Pa­cific.

Cacao Fiji founder Arif Khan said the award was a result of their hard work.

There is some excellent re­search and growth of the fine co­coa industry in Cairns, Australia, headed by some passionate indi­viduals.
