cocoa farmers and Zotter are connected by an intense collaboration. For three
years, Zotter, in cooperation with the Austrian Development Agency (ADA) and
two NGOs, was involved in a development assistance project for the cocoa
farmers. The project "cocoa instead of poverty" should offer the
peasant farmers a secure income. Zotter committed himself as buyer and advised
the farmers in terms of quality.
Two out of three
cooperatives left the project.
UNCRISPROCA continues to deliver cocoa to Zotter. With success: "Nicaragua 50%" was voted the best milk
chocolate in the world in the international chocolate test and comes, as do many
celebrities, from ordinary circumstances.
