Agricultural manufacturer and processor Cargill has announced a new partnership with ANADER, the national agency for rural development in Ivory Coast.

The two bodies will fund and develop 95 farming schools and will support 11 cocoa cooperatives in the country.

17,000 farmers are expected to be trained under the initiative, as well as cooperative managers, in order to produce higher yields, better quality cocoa and increase incomes for locals.

“High quality cocoa, grown in a sustainable way, is essential to the economies and livelihoods of farming communities in Côte d’Ivoire, as well as to Cargill, our customers and consumers,”​ said Greg Page, Cargill chairman and CEO.
