Increasing Productivity and Incomes of Cocoa Farmers
In 2008, the Cadbury Cocoa Partnership was launched to encourage the development of thriving cocoa communities in Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Caribbean. The Cocoa Partnership is a £45 million ($73 million) commitment to sustainable cocoa farming. Through this initiative, the Cocoa Partnership will promote sustainable livelihoods for one million cocoa farmers; increase cocoa crop yields 20 percent by 2012, and 100 percent by 2018; and create new sources of income in 100 cocoa farming communities.
