Taking a Step Toward Quality Standards in Cacao: The FCCI Story

Over the past two years, the FCCI cacao sampling protocol, a communication tool for cacao quality discussions, has been introduced to hundreds of stakeholders throughout the supply chain. It is now being used by cooperatives, estates, private fermentaries, exporters, importers, chocolate makers, and other professionals in 27 countries. Join us to learn more about our work toward international standards for cacao quality and the importance of giving all supply chain stakeholders a more accessible, objective way of providing feedback to one another.
