Cocoa Pod Borer

Attention all Cocoa Lovers......Have you seen this moth before? 


Cocoa Pod Borer is responsible for the destruction of more than 40% of cocoa each year in Indonesia!

Healthy cocoa covered in a sweet white pulp quickly turns to brown rotten looking beans that are not suitable for us humans to eat.

Just look what happens!!

Pruning IS an essential activity to help control this pest. 

Say NO to cocoa pod borer and YES to sustainable cocoa.

Help us encourage more farmers to prune to help rid their farms of this nasty pest by purchasing any cocoa paper products today.
