Hi!

I'm Samson from Tbilisi/Georgia. I'm new here, need a help of experienced people. :)

Planning to start a small shop selling organic raw cocoa beans, nibs, cocoa powder. But the problem is that Georgia (Republic of) it's a South Caucasus region)) is very far from cocoa origin countries, so we have a problem with source and transportation.

Can anybody recommend who can supply me with cocoa raw organic beans, nibs and cocoa powder in small quantities (100-150 kg. approximately)? May be directly from farm, if it is possible?.. But no middlemen, please!

Please advice me if you know where I can start searching or may be you are the person I'm looking for.

Thanks a lot for help to All!

Hi Samson

I work with a cooperative in Ecuador, they can supply you with the beans, I can supply you with nibs, cocoa powder, cocoa liquor and cocoa butter. The beans are raw, but I roast the beans to make all the other products

Samson, if you are interested in fine beans from Costa Rica, I can connect you with a group of growers. They had good rain this year and it's looking like an amazing crop.

Thanks Piper.

It could be interesting, may be.. depends production's quality/prices.

Another question - my country's custom authority demands "International phytosanitary certificate", it's absolutely strict demand for cocoa import. Are those peopleable to provide such a certificate and would they arrange all necessary shipping procedures?
