Akesson's cocoa cultivation in Madagascar

Akesson's Kakaoanbau auf Madagaskar
Bertil learned how to care for tropical plants at an early age, and his enthusiasm for fine cocoa and fine spices was awakened in his childhood. Today he mainly grows fine flavor cocoa on plantations in Madagascar, Brazil and Indonesia. With his AKESSON'S brand, Bertil not only supplies chocolate manufacturers and chefs worldwide, but above all produces excellent and multi-award-winning chocolate himself.

Trinitario and Criollo from Madagascar

AKESSON'S plantation in Madagascar has been family-owned for many decades. The Trinitario cocoa variety in particular is grown here, but Criollo is also used occasionally. These cocoa plants are very delicate, more susceptible to diseases and have a lower yield than bulk cocoa varieties.
