Technologies for enhancing cocoa production

Request Number N185634 | Author Mondelēz International


We are looking for technologies to help us to enhance cocoa production, be it through increased quality or yield. We are particularly interested in solutions making use of genomics and marker technology to improve cocoa production.


Cocoa plant science isn't as advanced as in other crops e.g. cereals, soy, wheat. We are looking for technologies that could be applied to cocoa to increase quality and/or yield.

Key Success Criteria

Solutions should not use Genetically Modified materials.

Possible Approaches
  • Genomics
  • Marker Development
What We Aren't Interested In
