Cocoa is not only the main ingredient for the world’s most popular treat. It is also an income source for millions of smallholder farmers. While cocoa trees are mainly cultivated in Africa, – Cote d’Ivoire and Ghana host 60% of its production – Latin America and the tropical parts of Asia make up for the rest. Currently, farmers are facing tremendous challenges due to low prices and often live below the extreme poverty line of $1.9 per person per day. Regenerative Agroforestry implies an economic opportunity for farmers by adding additional income streams, increasing food security, and stabilizing production.
