The association’s Extension, Training & Development and Certification departments work together closely to develop and organize trainings for certification and business and agronomic skills of the associated farmers. All trainings are conducted to stimulate member farmers in their work and finally increase their livelihood in cocoa.
We stand for a balanced growth where extension and certification go hand in hand. Capacity building is very important to us and is used to change the farmers’ mindset. Members become more professional using the right tools for their land thus increasing quantity and quality of their production.
Other developments are; the building of new more efficient cluster centers that strongly reduce the loss or mix up of cocoa. Setting up information systems to improve communication between the association and its member farmers. This allows for a quick and clear registration of all data resulting in a clear overview of a farmer’s land volume, productivity and social status.
