Our Partners

We set ourselves very high ambitions (we want to transform the cacao sector, nothing less!) which would not be possible to achieve without the long-term commitment and continuous support of our partners. We leverage their deep-rooted expertise to deploy the results they obtained in other regions of the world and constantly improve our operations. Together, we develop joint programs on a wide range of topics going from integrated pest management to post harvesting optimization, carbon accounting, renewable energies on the farms, waste reduction, use of by products, tracability, gender equality, community inclusion etc. This unique partnership benefits all our stakeholders: workers, smallholders, communities, nature, sponsors, lenders, clients and ultimately all the players of the cocoa value chain if we can show that, after all, cacao can be farmed sustainably at scale.
