  1. 1. National Agritourism Forum- 27th- 28th May 2019 –Port Moresby
  2. 2. BOUGAINVILLE CHOCOLATE FESTIVAL UPDATE • Bougainville Chocolate Festival is an integral part of the work being done in Bougainville by Autonomous Bougainville Government (ABG) in partnership with development partners to revive the cocoa industry in Bougainville. • It is an initiative of ABG led by the Departments of Primary Industry and Economic Development, in partnership with the National Government, Australia and New Zealand. • The Festival has been staged around the 3 regions of Bougainville, the event was staged in Buin Town South Bougainville in 2016. Arawa, Town Central Bougainville in 2017 , and in Buka, North Bougainville last year 2018 • Cocoa farmers across Bougainville normally prepare their world class beans for the Bougainville Chocolate Festival. • At the Festival, beans from across the three regions are processed into chocolate for judging by a panel of international chocolatiers. • The Festival is also a fun program with music, films, entertainment and stalls from last year’s gold medallist displaying their chocolate. We want to encourage ‘the next generation’ of cocoa farmers: young people and women.”
  3. 3. PURPOSE/ GOAL OF THE BOUGAINVILLE CHOCOLATE FESTIVAL The general aims of the Festival are to promote: ✓ quality of cocoa grown in Bougainville, ✓ create industry exposure, ✓ and improve market linkages to international markets. “World Class Cocoa for World Class Beans” Greater Economic Growth and Fiscal Self- reliance nnnnn
  4. 4. MAJOR ACHIEVEMENTS • Increased cocoa farmers participation and bring together chocolatiers, industry representatives and government officials to network and discuss market access, share improved farming and processing techniques. As well as sample the delicious chocolate made from Bougainville’s finest beans. • Increased international exposure to Bougainville's’ fine quality cocoa, also led to improvements in the quality and yield of beans for cocoa farmers. • Increased total of farmers winning gold according to internationally –charge criteria. • Since 2016, the Bougainville Chocolate Festival has been linking the best quality producing farmers with international cocoa buyers and chocolate makers.

  7. 7. CHOCOLATE BARS nnnnn
  8. 8. MAJOR CHALLENGES  Lack of proper infrastructure throughout Bougainville e.g. Roads, bridges, ports, wharfs/jetties.  High transport and basic service costs. Primarily as a result of lack of infrastructure.  Financial constraints and lack of resources. Low government funding allocations resulting in an understaffed and underfunded directorate.  Less progress in facilitating widespread access to new and higher- value added markets for cocoa (due to an array of issues).  Lack of strong partnership by all stakeholders/partners in the staging of the Festival.
  9. 9. MAJOR CHALLENGES CONT……..  Inadequate availability of cocoa processing equipment such as cocoa dryers, chocolate makers, etc.  Most of cocoa beans are exported through ENBP due to licensing issues.
  10. 10. HIGHEST PRIORITIES FOR 2019 Priorities • Increase technical and specific information and knowledge on cocoa quality improvement including fermenting, processing and drying. • Increase marketing and promotion of social media engagement and significant increase in national and international coverage. • Improve information gathering on cocoa productivity.
  11. 11. CONCLUSION • Overhauling of the two sectors (Agriculture & Tourism) to better complement each other as well as forging of strategic partnerships between the various stakeholders. • The potential benefits of agritourism for local agriculture are varied. First agritourism may generate diversification opportunities for local farmers to increase revenues and enhance the viability of their operations. nnnnn
