Abstract
This study aims to analyze the factors that influence the environment in the effort to develop the processed cocoa industry and the efforts made to encourage the development of the East Java processed cocoa industry. The basic method used was descriptive quantitative and qualitative descriptive with secondary data related to cocoa commodities in 2007-2016. The analytical method used to answer the first objective of the factors that influence competitiveness in the perspective of the development of East Java's processed cocoa industry was multiple linear regression analysis and the Porter’s Diamond Method to identify competitiveness constraints. Then a descriptive qualitative method through literature study was employed to answer the second objective of the efforts made to improve the development of the processed cocoa industry in East Java. The results of this study indicate that from the Porter’s Diamond Method, in general, the East Java processed cocoa industry is not competitive due to limited infrastructure and the difficulty of access to capital sources. The factors that influence competitiveness in the perspective of the development of the East Java processed cocoa industry are export volumes, export prices and cocoa productivity which have a significant positive effect. Based on the constraints from the identification using Porter's Diamond Method, efforts must be made to improve the competitiveness of the processed cocoa industry, namely improving the quality and quality of processed cocoa, increasing export volumes, maintaining export prices, developing processed cocoa industry clusters, facilitating capital access, deregulating policies and developing infrastructure.
