Cacao in the Dominican Republic

Cacao was introduced in the Dominican Republic by the Spaniards at the beginning of the XVII century. Several decades later, the French had taken over the island and planted new varieties from other Latin American colonies.
"Today, 40 per cent of the forests consist of cacao; and most of our rivers originate in the forested highlands. In short, cacao is one of the national treasures, and it is our duty to protect it"
-Héctor José RizekCacao production is distributed in 28 municipalities belonging to 11 provinces in 5 regions.Cacao land ownership is essentially made-up of smallholders, where 40,000 farms belong to 35,000 families. Farm size varies between 2 and 5 Ha in 70% of cases. The northeastern region, called the Cibao, is a notable exception as the average farm size is above 7.5 Ha, and the presences of larger farms is not uncommon.The country possesses vast extensions of land which are potentially suitable for cacao farming
