Behind the scenes, a number of organizations were working on improving the situation for these producers but despite public attention, the barriers that lock cocoa producers in a poverty trap remained in place. This report, “Moving the
Bars”, reflects on how one program aimed to move the bars apart. The Cocoa Improvement Program (CIP) operated for four years from 2008-2012, with the aim of improving the sustainability of the global cocoa industry.
Over the last five years, the cocoa industry has been completely transformed by a wave of corporate commitments to sustainability and supply chain investment. CIP was part of that bigger picture. The objective of this study is to evaluate whether the program’s objectives have been met, to create insight in the lessons learned from the program and to
formulate recommendations for succeeding programs and for similar programs in other production chains.
Given the limited data available on the impact of cocoa sustainability programs worldwide, the added value of this study lays in the combination of data and perspectives from CIP progress reports, a survey and interviews amongst supply chain actors, data provided by companies that source a great share of cocoa, additional (scientific) reports and thorough team analyses by KPMG.
