Hermann Trebsche

MA work

Hermann&Hermann – Cacao Drinks is an enterprise dealing with the globalisation and industrialisation of food. The enterprise creates a system and products that facilitate a sustainable and ethical cocoa economy, where each person investing time or money into the supply chain is able to earn a decent income, work in good conditions, and in a manner that does not harm the environment. In addition to that the newly developed drink – produced by the ‘Cacao Maker’ – provides the end consumer with a healthy alternative to hot chocolate or coffee. In the future I wish to continue my entrepreneurial journey pursuing this as well as the MöÖB project (a learning toy).
