Cocoa Development Centre Video
We came across this fascinating video recently that was produced by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) in 2013 and thought we would share it.
Since 2011, Mars has partnered with IFAD, an agency of the United Nations and the government of Indonesia to establish Cocoa Development Centres in Indonesia. These training centres are also where Cocoa Care farmers go to learn good agricultural practices essential for the sustainability of cocoa.
This video highlights the challenges farmers in Indonesia are facing with decreasing cocoa yields and follows 2 cocoa farms through training as they learn new techniques. Furthermore and most encouraging it illustrates the success farmers are having since recieved training and then implemented their learnings back on their own farms.Watch below:
