FECCANO (or the Fédération des Coopératives Cacaoyères du Nord) is a federation of eight member cooperatives. It was formed in 2022 under the aegis of various projects and local NGOs. It brings together more than 3,100 families and is the first cooperative to commit to selling high-quality cocoa in the country by, among other things, carefully managing fermentation and drying. FECCANO and Valrhona met in 2011. The conversations we had encouraged us to sign a partnership in 2015 so that we could support these pioneering producers committed to promoting Haitian cocoa and making it sustainable for the future.
Since 2017, alongside our Haitian partner, Feccano, and with the support of the NGO ACSF (Agronomes et Vétérinaires Sans Frontières), we are financing a project to regenerate Creole gardens. The partner producers have taken part in individual plot surveys, which determine what action needs to be taken to boost productivity and show that profitable eco-friendly cocoa farming is really possible. These actions diversify sources of income, improve food security and help to preserve biodiversity.
Plots involved in the project in previous years continue to produce cocoa harvests that are up to 80% higher compared with the year the project began.
