Exporting certified cocoa to Europe

Europe is the most important market for certified cocoa in the world. The largest markets for certified cocoa and chocolate are found in Western Europe. Growing consumer interest, the sustainability programmes of major chocolate companies and governments’ procurement policies in Europe have all added to the demand for certified cocoa. Rainforest Alliance/UTZ is the most commonly used mainstream certification scheme for cocoa. Fairtrade and organic are growing on the specialty markets, and offer interesting opportunities for exporters, especially if your cocoa is certified by both standards.
