About CocoaSafe
Overview
The project aims at producing and trading cocoa that meets food safety and international SPS standards. This will include (i) improving the quality of cocoa through capacity building in SPS, (ii) promoting and facilitating knowledge sharing between stakeholder groups participating in the project, and (iii) raising awareness among cocoa stakeholders beyond the project’s immediate reach on food safety concerns in the whole supply chain (and how to address them). The stakeholders targeted by the project include smallholder producers, agro-dealers, processors and exporters, also involving national and regional authorities that are responsible for research relating to cocoa, and SPS issues.
