IUMI Webinar: The risks and tricks associated with loading cocoa beans in containers


In this webinar Caroline Paul, Manager Africa at DP Survey Africa, will discuss risks and tricks associated with loading cocoa beans in containers. With approximately 70% of the world's cocoa beans coming from West African countries, various challenges need to be considered when shipping this sensitive commodity around the world:

  • natural properties of cocoa beans
  • methods to analyse and measure moisture content and other relevant parameters
  • correct packaging and storage
  • selection of suitable containers
  • transit follow up

Caroline’s presentation will consider the complete journey of cocoa beans, thereby addressing many pitfalls that should be avoided to prevent losses from occurring.



Thursday, November 15, 2018 - 10:00-11:00 CET (Hamburg time)
