To share, meet and learn for sustainable cocoa

economic policies

Economic policies facilitate (or hinder) a smooth functioning cocoa chain and the development of a sustainable cocoa sector. For example, pricing policies can help to mitigate risks and stabilize farmer income. A tax regime can affect the viability of running local processing facilities. Import tariffs can hinder import of cocoa-products and chocolate. These imlementations therefore play an important role in the cocoa chain.

Food for thought

The World Bank recently published a report on risk management in the cocoa sector.
