CERTIBIO - Technical assistance to Eccokim for Organic cocoa certification and production
In a context where the cocoa sector in Ivory Coast is facing an groing demand for certified organic beans, Ecookim wants to certify 9 organic cocoa cooperatives, by starting a voluntary program aimed at supporting 1,800 producers, or 200 producers per cooperative. Nitidæ, who already has the experience of supporting a cooperative organic certification in Ivory Coast, was chosen by Ecookim to support it in its project: "support for certification and production of organic cocoa"
