Pelle Bongo


Partner: TechnoServe Cote d’Ivoire

Pelle Cobra gives Ivorian cocoa farmers a faster, safer, and more ergonomic way to split cocoa pods. By combining the cocoa cracking, splitting, and scooping motions into a single tool, the Pelle Cobra frees up farmers’ time while improving safety and reducing physical strain. Priced at under $6, the locally-manufactured tool will provide farmers with the means to safeguard the quality of their cocoa beans and improve their livelihoods.
