There’s a huge potential for success in investing in cocoa in Trinidad and Tobago which can be derived from its rich legacy of cocoa cultivation. This is the testimony of Diaspora investor Ashley Parasram who left Trinidad and Tobago at age 4, was educated in the United Kingdom and Finland and found himself reconnecting with his homeland on and off for about 10 years until he uncovered an ideal investment opportunity for the processing of cocoa into high end chocolates. In 2015 he launched The Trinidad and Tobago Fine Cocoa Company - a bean-to-bar chocolate manufacturing factory located just 5 minutes from the Piarco International Airport in Trinidad. After 1 year of operation and three awards he can safely say that he is on his way to achieving full success.
