As our work pertains to sustainable cocoa production we have been able to, in the past four years: -Identify and stimulate the market demand for cocoa products using organic cocoa; -Identify that strong extension support is critical to begin to meet sustainable goals; -Create assessment and planning tools applicable to a wide variety of cocoa growing regions in light of demand increase; -That the market may prove to be the critical link in stimulating sustainalbe production; -That further region specific research is necessary to identify sustainable production plans. It is OCP's believe that sustainable cocoa production will not only lead to environmental integrity and social and economic stability but will also improve product quality and supply security.
