Did you Know?

 

 

 Almost all of the world's cocoa is produced by poor families on small plots of land in tropical areas of Asia and Africa. 

  Indonesia is the world's third largest cocoa producer with >1 million farming families depending on cocoa for income and their children's education. 

  Farmers in Indonesia can get as much as 70% of world cocoa prices at their farm gate, but simple limitations are holding back their ability to take advantage of this market. 

  Most cocoa farms in Indonesia could double their productivity if the farmers had better knowledge about farm management practices and better access to new disease and pest resistant cocoa varieties. 

   Many cocoa farmers know that they could do better but do not have the resources or access to the help they need to revitalize their farms. This trap seems inescapable to many. 

  Through a combination of simple inputs to get started (simple farm tools and better planting materials), training (good agricultural practices and financial management) and a friendly helping hand, Cocoa Care helps farmers to develop their skills, revitalize their farming businesses and reinvest profits to permanently escape the poverty trap.
