Fostering Cocoa Sustainability With Satellite Monitoring

Achieving sustainable cocoa production is an ongoing challenge for small farmers in West Africa, Indonesia, and Latin America. Cocoa farmers experience poverty and uncertainty due to volatile and low prices, tree diseases and pests, and a lack of financial and technical resources to improve their crop. Even when financing is available, farmers lack the low-risk profile that would allow them to receive favorable loans to make improvements that would help them adapt to this challenging situation.

Our Head of Supply Chains Alan Kroeger explains in this article for Food Technology Magazine how satellite monitoring makes the difference.
