Helping African Cocoa Farmers

The winnower/grinder

David Zigro is picking up the two machines that PH&F commissioned in 2016.  Within the next 30 days, David will be manufacturing 30 g bars, wrapping them, and selling to supermarkets in Issia, Daloa, and Abidjan!  These may well be the first village made bars in Africa, the continent that grows 75% of the world's cacao.
