The cooperatives we work with are involved in schemes that support the farmers. For example, in São Tomé it offers the farmers a fair and stable market price, guaranteed to be locally competitive. The company works to ensure that even the most isolated communities are reached in order to sell their cocoa. They always respect purchasing agreements and the farmers need not fear being left with unsold cocoa at the end of the day.
In Dominican Republic, they empower women and youths, have environmental initiatives to reduce climate change, educate farmers on their finances, run health projects and local community improvements.
