Bejofo Estate

In the fertile soils of the Ambanja district, part of the Sambirano valley we find the Bejofo Estate owned by Bertil Åkesson since 1998. Prior to this it was governmentally owned, similarly to every other plantation in Madagascar. Ever since then the mission has been to bring out the highest quality of each crop that grows on the plantation. The cocoa mainly consists of Trinitario trees that have been brought to the island by the French, and a minor part of the Criollo cocoa variety. Over the years Bertil has played a large role in elevating the standards towards high quality cocoa. The cocoa from Bejofo contains the delicate acidic citrus flavours that a lot of Madagascan cocoa has been known for.
