Fiji Cocoa Farmers Association

The Fiji Cocoa Association was formed on the 22nd of January 2016 in order to represent cocoa farmers around Fiji. This makes it an important starting point, as Cocoa Farmers are able to strategically discuss issues, ideas, and concerns up front.

Objective of the Associations are:

  • To collect the production of cocoa so that the government and farmers can benefit.
  • To secure the complete organization of the Association;
  • To promote the interest, protect and maintain just and proper treatment of members in all aspects of the members
  • To represent the interest of the members to the Fiji Government;
  • To negotiate all matters relating to the promotion and development of the Cocoa Industry to all relevant stakeholders.
  • To promote and solve issues at the shortest timeframe.
  • To do all such things as are incidental or conducive to the attainment of the above objectives.
