To share, meet and learn for sustainable cocoa

food security

Food security is high on the international agenda. There are different approaches to food security in relation to cocoa production:

The cocoa, as cash crop, can enable cocoa farmers to buy food on the market. Cocoa can also be produced next to other crops to ensure a stable income and as a means of risk mitigation. Another approach is when cocoa producers produce their own food for home consumption next to their cocoa.

Food for thought
