The CCE (Certification Capacity Enhancement) project is a multi-stakeholder initiative between the development agencies GIZ, the Dutch Sustainable Trade Initiative (IDH), Solidaridad, the voluntary standards organizations Fairtrade International (FLO), Rainforest Alliance and UTZ Certified, and a number of private cocoa industry companies (Archer Daniels Midland, Armajaro, Mars, Mondelez (previously Kraft Foods), Toms, and Continaf). CCE developed a common curriculum and training capacities for the three sustainability standards Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance and UTZ Certified for certification of cocoa in Ghana, Côte d’Ivoire and Nigeria.
