Artisan chocolate makers from Australia say they hope to improve the profits of cocoa growers by returning to next week's Bougainville chocolate festival.

Canberra chocolatier Jasper and Myrtle sourced cocoa beans at last year's event which led to international awards for the company, and to a local grower's first exports.

This year the chocolatier is aiming to help growers improve their techniques to increase the premiums they can charge.

Dominic Godfrey caught up with Jasper and Myrtle's Peter Channells and Li Peng Monroe.
