Davao City's cacao dev't aligned with national roadmap

THE current direction of the cacao industry in Davao City is aligned with the Cacao National Roadmap for 2020, said the City Agriculture’s Office (CAO).

CAO head Leo Brian Leuterio said the National Roadmap 2020 intends to produce 200,000 metric tons (MT) of cacao beans per year by 2020. Currently, there is a nationwide record of 20,000 MT per year already.

“About 70 to 80 percent of the Philippine production of cacao is in Davao Region and a lot of processors are in Davao City,” said Leuterio.
