The Cocoa Research Centre flavour section is seeking to organise its physical, chemical and organoleptic analyses into a formal accreditation scheme within the coming months.


Using NIR as a new tool for cocoa research

Currently the flavour section is responsible for organoleptic profiling of the ICGT collection (on-going).

The section is also a partner in several projects seeking to understand the flavour attributes and processing potential of specific clones within the collection.

Trinidad Fundare is the result of a collaboration with CRC and Charley Wheelock of Woodblock Manufactory. This collaboration is an unprecedented partnership in support of the ICGT using cocoa from the genebank to create a unique taste experience representing a sampling of the extensive diversity of the ICGT.

The Fundare bar will appeal to the imagination of chocolate lovers as a means to give back to the cocoa industry by supporting the ICGT which is an invaluable resource to sustain the future of chocolate for generations.
