CocoaPOP has just held its closing symposium: Cocoa Pollination Research Advances

This took place on 5th April 2016 in Trinidad and Tobago.

Please see the CocoaPOP blog for information and links.




Welcome to the CocoaPOP website!

The Cocoa Pollination for Optimised Production project is a research project co-funded by the European Development Fund through the ACP Caribbean & Pacific Research Programme for Sustainable Development, a programme implemented by the ACP Group of States. 

CocoaPOP is a collaboration between institutions in Trinidad & Tobago, Jamaica and the United Kingdom with an objective of supporting research and capacity building on methods that will improve yields of cocoa through improving pollination services.  Higher yields will mean more cocoa can be produced from less land, reducing the need to expand plantations, protection biodiversity whilst raising farmer's incomes.

This 3-year project started in October 2012: please visit the CocoaPOP blog page for regular updates on project activities and results/outputs as they are derived.

Visit the gallery for images from the project, or the About the Project pages for more information about cocoa pollination and the rationale behind this work.
