Request Material

Plant material is provided from the International Cocoa Quarantine Centre for the purpose of breeding and research.

The Centre usually sends out material as budwood (graftwood), although we can also provide flower buds (for tissue culture initiation) and moderate quantities of seed (e.g. for rootstock production).

 Important: For each shipment of plant material, an import permit from the appropriate authority should be sent to us at least two weeks before the date of shipment.


For further information on the quarantine facility, the accessions held at Reading or to request cocoa material, please contact:
