Barry Callebaut and Cameroon intensify collaboration to support young cocoa farmers
The Cameroon NEW GENERATION program was initiated by the Cameroon Cocoa and Coffee Interprofessional Council (CICC) to eliminate those barriers that are currently stopping many young Cameroonians from succeeding their parents in cocoa farming. The program aims for the establishment of Centres of Excellence for post-harvest treatment, as well as the systematization of good agriculture and post-harvest practices.
Without cocoa farmers, there is no chocolate. By combining the expertise and resources on the ground from the CICC and Barry Callebaut we want to accelerate the progress towards a sustainable cocoa farming sector, in order for cocoa farming to remain an attractive professional future for young Cameroonians.
