We did not construct this innovative project by ourselves. We are honored to be supported by partners with multiple areas of expertise in improving the entirety of our cocoa network. Together we believe in the success of this Transparence Cacao program which is evolving each day, as evidenced by our indicators.

It is very important for us to make special mention of the Conseil Cacao-Café (CCC) and Earthworm, two partners who have been by our side since day one.  In December 2017,Transparence Cacao and Earthworm decided to stop their partnership because Transparence Cacao has now stabilized a perimeter of selected cooperatives in Côte d’Ivoire. The two organizations will continue mutual consultations to share information and best practices on the cocoa sector.
