Our Compañía Nacional de Chocolates,
a first private company in Colombia to register new cocoa varieties
Published July 2021
Instituto Colombiano Agropecuario (ICA) granted our Company the registrations on its plant materials Cacao CNCh-12 and Cacao CNCh-13, as a result of 15-year research led from its Yariguíes Farm to strengthen the competitiveness of the cocoa-chocolate chain in Colombia.
These new superior materials produce cocoa with outstanding characteristics for use in different cocoa-growing areas and are distinguished by their fine flavor and aroma, their adaptability to agro-ecological conditions, bean size, and their earliness and productivity. They can also fertilize themselves.
