Along with the support and expertise of our member companies, we rely upon a network of partners who share our commitment to cocoa sustainability.
Partners include governments of cocoa-producing countries, the U.S. government, EU Parliament, research institutes, non-governmental organizations, universities, philanthropic foundations and international development and multilateral organizations. WCF believes that operating in partnership with these entities optimizes the knowledge and commitment of the partners and maximizes the benefit to farmers, their families, and their communities.
