Public-private SUCCESS Alliance supports cocoa farmers
ACDI/VOCA, the World Cocoa Foundation and Mars, Inc., team up to form the Sustainable Cocoa Enterprise Solutions for Smallholders (SUCCESS) Alliance, a public-private alliance dedicated to cocoa development. The USAID Global Development Alliance funds the SUCCESS Alliance, which connects corporations with public entities to help smallholder cocoa farmers in Indonesia and the Philippines. The SUCCESS Alliance subsequently launched programs in Vietnam, Ecuador, Jamaica, Liberia and Ghana. By addressing production and marketing barriers, the SUCCESS Alliance has an impressive record of improving livelihoods and boosting competitiveness.
