Team Full On has 2 Winners in National Top Ten Quality Competition
We’re still in awe at Jessie’s and Pipo’s amazing wins at the Philippine Cacao & Chocolate competition. Jessie and Pipo BOTH placed in the Top Ten for quality cacao beans and the only two growers using Full On. This competition is no joke and the Philippines takes their cacao production very, very seriously. Tests include multiple mass spectrometer tests along with a full battery of physical, sensory and blind taste testing of the cacao beans. We’re also taken back by the fact that two young growers were able to beat much larger cacao farmers with years more experience and considerably more resources. As Jessie says “Anyway, all those who got into the top ten have huge farms, except the both of us. Pipo only have 1.5 hectare and I only have 5 trees. Hahahaha Those people got at least 10-80 hectares of stable cacao farms.” Huge respect for Jessie and Team Full On in the Philippines!!!
