KUAPA KOKOO IS NOW UTZ CERTIFIED
Kuapa Kokoo Farmers Cocoa Cooperative and Marketing Union Limited (KKFU) during its 21st Annual Delegates Conference (ADC) held in August 2015 resolved to obtain multiple certification status i.e. Fairtrade Labling Organisation (FLO), Fairtrade USA, UTZ and Rainforest Alliance.
On the 30th March 2016, KKFU received its UTZ certified certificate with initial certified farmers of 3,000 and an estimated volume of 2000MT of cocoa.
As part of plans to extend the UTZ programme to cover more farmers, additional 7,000 farmers with estimated volume of 8,000MT were enrolled onto the programme. Therefore currently about 10,000 farmers with an estimated volume of 10,000MT have been certified under KKFU UTZ certification programme in six primary societies namely Bibiani, Offinso, Konongo, Sankore, Asawinso and Akontombra.
We therefore use this platform to invite businesses and like-minded partners to source UTZ certified cocoa from Kuapa Kokoo since we have the capacity and the track record to deliver.
