Domori´s collaborations with associations and NGOs for the development of coca substitute crops

November 21, 2020

Domori's relationship with cocoa-producing countries includes collaborations with NGOs, governments and cooperatives, to convert coca-growing areas to cocoa crops, making the plantations a source of livelihood for local populations.

Domori worked in Colombia with Asoprolan, a cooperative of coffee and cocoa growers in the Santandereana region of Montana, where the UNODC (United Nation Office on Drugs and Crime) - the United Nations Agency for Drug Control and Prevention of crime - received land management from the Colombian government to help farmers abandon coca cultivation, through the Venezuelan Criollo and Trinitario cocoa plant.

Domori has provided technical and training support, then making the most of cocoa thanks to the introduction on the market of the fine chocolate sector. In this way it was possible to guarantee growers a price that would convince them to abandon coca in favor of the cultivation of cocoa.
