What matters to us

The Cocoa of Excellence Programme aims to promote and provide global recognition to farmers producing high-quality cocoa.

Our Vision

To achieve farmers'/producers’ professionalization and long-term sustainability of the cocoa supply chain. 

Our Purpose

Recognize, value and preserve cocoa by providing global recognition of high quality cocoa

Our Objectives

  1. Increase awareness and promote education along the cocoa supply chain on the opportunity to produce high quality cocoa and preserve flavours resulting from genetic diversity, “terroir” and know-how of the farmers who prepare cocoa.
  2. Facilitate communication and linkages between cocoa farmers/producers and operators in the supply chains.
  3. Stimulate and increase capacity of producing countries to recognize, seek out and preserve quality and diversity in cocoa.
