Farmgate Cocoa Alliance (FCA) is established in 2017, as a non-profit in the Netherlands, to be cocoa sector-leading bottom-up ALLIANCE, driving significant change in the lives of cocoa farmers and farm workers. Our members include cooperative, workers union, farmer group, civil society from cocoa producing and consuming countries.
Our goal is to make it possible for cocoa farmers, and particularly the unorganized smallholders to have the opportunity to become independent cocoa entrepreneur. Through our activities, we group, train and build the capacity of smallholders, so they can atain the capability and tools needed to manage a sustainable farming business. This way, the cocoa sector can become inclusive, transparent and sustainable and works for the interests of farmers and consumers.
To archive these, we collaborate with diverse stakeholders form the private and public sectors to implement needed strides that move the sector in the direction of permanent sustainability and ensure inclusive development to benefit people, business and nature.
