To share, meet and learn for sustainable cocoa

public policies

Public policies contribute to the design of a (sustainable) cocoa value chain. Governments present rules in which value chains operate.

Compare Ghana with Ivory Coast, and a completely different way in which the sector is organized appears.

These regulations influence the relations between farmers and industries, set rules for export markets, affect incentive structures in place for quality and volumes of cocoa, etc.

Food for thought

In Indonesia they experienced a boom in cocoa production because of hands-off policy.
