Sustainable Cocoa Beans
Cocoa farming is a smallholders’ business – approximately 6 million farmers are producing approximately 5 million tons of cocoa per year, globally. Most of the world’s cocoa is grown in West-Africa. In Ghana approximately 600,000 – 800,000 smallholder farmers are engaged in the production of an average 850,000 tons of cocoa beans per year. Our group companies in Ghana (Fludor Ghana Limited) and Nigeria (WACOT Limited) following stringent quality control norms and export the same to different customers around the world. In addition to our mainstream operations, we source cocoa verified sustainable against the Rainforest Alliance certification standard.
We have well established sustainability programs on the ground aiming to improving the living standards of cocoa farming households, building capacity for the communities, and protecting and regenerating the natural resources.
Our cocoa sustainability programs aim to bring impact in the following areas:
⦁ Improvement of farmer livelihoods by promoting sustainable farming practices, building farmers’ entrepreneurial abilities, diversifying income streams and more.
⦁ Strengthening of the local communities by building capacities, empowering women and young people and safeguarding human rights, with the elimination of worst forms of child labour a top priority.
⦁ Preservation and restoration of natural landscapes and of the biodiversity.
⦁ Delivery of maximum supply chain transparency, by investing in traceability, so we build trust in our cocoa
⦁ Securing and increasing the supply of sustainable cocoa.
⦁ Enhancement of the quality of cocoa produced, for example through the provision of high yielding seedlings.
