A BOTTOM UP-APPROACH, TO A SUSTAINABLE COCOA SECTOR

Farmgate Cocoa Alliance is a unique bottom up platform for stakeholders to unite their efforts and effectively implement the needed steps that will ensure long-term cocoa sustainability

We promote and facilitate professionalisation of cocoa farming business, by grouping, training, and build the capacity of cocoa farmers particularly the smallholder cocoa farmers into sovereign cocoa entrepreneurs
