Projecttitel: Valorising cacao pulp to improve farmers’ income
Projectnummer: SMP-2220
Land: Ecuador
Looptijd: 2022
Budget: € 40.000
Projectleider: Bert Dijkink
Kennisinstelling: Wageningen University & Research

Smallholder cacao farmers in Ecuador have troubles earning a living with selling their beans. To improve their income, the cacao pulp can be valorised by making use of locally deployed Dutch food processing technology. In this SMP the feasibility of the mobile processing units will be studied by a strong consortium of Dutch and Ecuadorian partners. This is a stepping stone towards deployment and upscaling of Dutch technology, therewith improving the lives of Ecuadorian cacao farmers.
