Abstract
Cacao trees grow and produce well in Hawaii. How can we develope cacao growing and chocolate production to best utilize this asset? This project research will help define the potential for cocoa production in Hawaii and whether sufficient high end gourmet cocoa products can be produced in a scaled-down factory, appropriate in size for local production, sold at a high enough price and in large enough quantities to support cacao farmers, cocoa processors and retailers.
