Preparations have been made to introduce the ‘cocoa for a better life’ model in Ivory Coast, Cameroon and Sierra Leone. We expect to start setting up new associations in these countries in 2013-2015.

For the time being Ascot can offer cocoa beans from these regions, however not yet from our own cooperatives. On all profit made by Ascot, trading cocoa from these countries, our associations and its members will also benefit for 44%.
