Global Cocoa Market Link (GCML

We have established a Global Cocoa Market Link (GCML), to link our members directly with buyers, such as, industry, traders, chocolatiers, grinders, supper market brands, small chocolate producers and other big brands in the chocolate supply chain to source cocoa beans directly from farmers.

Source direct from our members
Buying directly from cocoa farmers will create a healthy trading environment, a direct result of this will be, that youth will be encourage to become cocoa farmers. It will also solve the problem of ageing cocoa farmers. Another result  will be that more women will embrace cocoa farming as a profession. All this together plays a significant role to boost the economy of cocoa growing communities which will limit urban-rural migration especially among the youth.
