The One Farmer, One Acre programme in Ghana arranges for young adults within the farming community to prune an acre of a cocoa farm for a farmer with the labour costs covered by Olam Cocoa and Mondelez. At the end of 2018, over 4,800 acres had been pruned involving more than 2,670 farmers. Improvements in yield have also resulted in farmers paying for extra acres to be pruned, which supports the young adults in work. Hear from the farmers in our blog.
Our vision is of an environmentally positive, professionalised and quality focused cocoa supply chain comprised of farmers who are earning a living income and whose children have access to education. Read more about our cocoa sustainability programmes globally.
