We dont have our own factory but we consider the current factory facility quite sufficient.

The cacao export is limited to fine bean. Although the volume is small, it is expected to open ways to the cacao global trading network.Furthermore, the company starts intensifying cocoa business at local market. At the moment, Sarinah is nurturing Lampung and West Sulawesi markets and then Padang. West Sulawesi and Lampung are projected to be Sarinahs fermentation units. (T05/NOM)
