Touton, a French trading company, buys cocoa from farmers all over Ghana. Before they worked with us, guaranteeing quality and sustainability was expensive and time-consuming.
Using Mergdata, they mapped and data-visualized tens of thousands of cocoa farms. Now they can easily and accurately predict harvests, carry out certification, perform sustainability monitoring and know that they’re getting top quality cocoa that their consumers will be happy to buy.
In partnership with The Hershey Company, we launched the Cocoalink Mobile app – a resource that’s designed to get young farmers fired up about sustainable cocoa production.
Thousands of up-and-coming smallholders regularly use its interactive content, completing quizzes, getting weather updates, reading articles and taking courses.
