Tour in the bush Monday October 4th

This is my 1st visit in the bush, magical to meet cocoa farmers! We were with clients who wanted to see how UTZ certification works in IVC.

First, visit of a buying station in Oumé (Gagnoa region), and then meet the planters of Diegonefla in a “school field” where they learn how to produce quality cocoa compliant with the certification (quality + good practices).

First time for me to see cocoa trees and how cocoa is processed before drying. Memorable!

We spent the night at Gagnoa (president Laurent Gbagbo was born in the nearby village of Mama). Dinner at a maquis.
