Theobroma has been a leading independent trader and market maker in cocoa products and cocoa beans since 1922. Theobroma started commercial life on the basis of making direct supplies to the chocolate industry, and as a result we have an in depth knowledge of our customers and their needs, as well of cocoa products and their specifications. We specialise in the practical logistics of transporting solid and liquid product, as well as blending requirements, quality specifications and product presentation. Since 2006, we have had our own proprietary production of cocoa products in The Netherlands and Nigeria under the brand “Tulip Cocoa”.
‘Professional Cocoa Farming Program in Cameroon’
Beginning 2014 Theobroma signed an agreement with IDH (The Sustainable Trade Initiatve) and became a partner in the CPQP program. A joint-pilot project called ‘Professional Cocoa Farming in Cameroon’ is co-funded by IDH, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Syngenta and Solidaridad.
Important elements are farm development centres, improved planting material, traceability and youth farm management teams. More information you find here.
