Cacao Revenga

Cacao Revenga

Cacao Revenga is a program that seeks to favor the capacities of the  gastronomic entrepreneurs in the Revenga Municipality with the aim of generating sustainable and successful businesses

How it arose

The Venezuelan-Italian Chamber in partnership with the NGO Trabajo y Persona, run the project Venezuela Tierra de Cacao, training throughout the women in the art of chocolate making. In 2017, they approached the Santa Teresa Foundation to participate in this project with the support of the Delegation of the European Union in Venezuela. By 2018, financial backing was approved, allowing the program to start running in Revenga in February 2019.

Participants receive training in the techniques of tempering, making chocolate bars, coins and lollipops as well as French and Belgian style chocolates along with basic notions of costs and approaches to business plans.
