Our Three Key Sustainability Pillars

ADVOCATE FOR SECTOR REFORM

We advocate for an inclusive national structure in cocoa producing countries, that will define stakeholders role and responsibility. This will help to ensure transparency and bring accountability at all levels in the value chain

COCOA FARMING ENTREPRENEURSHIP

We encourage cocoa farming entrepreneurship, by helping farmers (smallholders) see the necessity to manage their farms as a business. This will help them overcome poverty, and pave the way for a decent, and sustainable living standard  

ENHANCING COCOA SUSTAINABILITY 

We promote cocoa sustainability, by bringing stakeholders together to jointly address farmer and farm challenges such as, income, limited GAP knowledge, child labour, deforestation and climate change, to secure cocoa sustainability
