New expo celebrates Pacific Cacao and take it to the world stage

Cacao Ambassador Oonagh Browne has been working with Pacific countries such as Fiji and the Solomon Islands on cultivating cacao, but says it’s incredible how only one country really uses it in their cultural eating habits. 

“Samoa’s very rare in the countries around the world in that it grows cacao and actually consumes it. They’re very famous for their Koko Samoa. 

“So it’s a very great passion of mine for the farmers who grow cacao to learn how they can actually make their own chocolate and drinking chocolate at home in their own village, so they can enjoy their crop.”
