Simran BindraDirector, Kokoa Kamili
Simran Bindra is one of the founders of Kokoa Kamili, a boutique cocoa fermentary in central Tanzania. Kokoa Kamili was founded in 2013 with the goals of producing some of the world’s best cocoa, and improving farmer incomes. Kokoa Kamili currently has a network of ~4,500 smallholder farmers from whom they source ‘wet’ cocoa which is then fermented, dried, graded, blended and packed in-house before being exported to some of the best chocolate makers throughout the world. Kokoa Kamili is proud to have put Tanzania on the map as a source of fine flavour cocoa, and to have significantly increased the incomes of the farmers they work with.
