One of the things that makes our Cacao-Trace programme so unique is our Chocolate Bonus.
Cacao-Trace involves a close long-term partnership with carefully selected cocoa farming communities. Our farmers are trained to deliver higher quality cocoa beans. When they achieve this, they receive a ‘quality’ premium on top of their farm gate price.
In addition, Cacao-Trace has introduced the Chocolate Bonus which involves Puratos customers and end consumers in the programme. This bonus allows us to connect with the farming communities and share the benefits by giving them an extra €0.10 per kilo of chocolate that is sold. This adds up to the equivalent of about 1 or 2 extra months’ salary for the farmers.
