Trinitario Over The Years
Chocolate trends…and opportunities
T&T’s COCOA industry sector is changing. More and smaller scale producers are coming online with chocolate-making machinery that used to be very expensive, and large scale machines are becoming more affordable and practical to use. This has sprouted batch producers from the Caribbean, Pacific and all along the equator. We in Trinidad and Tobago are at the heart of this new wave and we are riding it.
