Senior executives from 12 of the world’s largest chocolate and cocoa companies are signing a joint agreement with the Government of Ghana as part of an unprecedented strategy to accelerate actions to make cocoa farming in the country sustainable.

The plan, announced here today and known as CocoaAction, calls for building a rejuvenated and economically viable cocoa sector through increased cooperation between industry members and the Ghanaian government. Emphasis will be placed on providing cocoa farmers with a combination of productivity enhancements and community development interventions. These efforts are expected to enable no fewer than 100,000 Ghanaian farmers to achieve 100% increase in productivity as well as improving the communities where they live by 2020. The strategy will be coordinated by the World Cocoa Foundation (WCF).
