Cocoa Chamber Created in Nicaragua

The creation of the union of cocoa farmers in the country aims to implement comprehensive strategies to promote the long-term development of the sector.

Friday, August 15, 2014

More than 60 independent producers and cooperatives have appointed a team to coordinate the legal aspects of the formalization of the Chamber, with which they seek to have better representation and greater government support.

Laprensa.com.ni reports that "... the decision has arisen to enable all cocoa producers to act as one body and take the same direction in the decisions made as a guild.
They also seek to manage government resources, which they say, are vastly lacking in the productive areas, so that there are services for technical and financial support. "

"...In this sense they acknowledge the support and advice provided by the Institute for Development and Democracy (Ipade) and the funds allocated and they hope to strengthen the Swiss Cooperation for Central America through economic development projects. "
