European Cocoa Association becomes Primary Food Processors member


The European Cocoa Association (ECA) has joined the association of Primary Food Processors (PFP).

PFP is a body representing the European primary food processing industry while ECA members make up over two-thirds of Europe’s cocoa bean grinding, half of Europe's industrial chocolate production and 40 % of the world production of cocoa liquor, butter and powder.

ECA chairman Martin Versteeg, said: “We strongly believe in synergies between EU first‐processing industries’ interests on EU regulatory issues – PFP offers a valuable platform to increase our share of voice in Brussels.”

PFP will now be made up of six sector associations working in flour, starch, sugar, cocoa, vegetable protein, vegetable oil and meal products.
