Two new studies on cocoa certification commissioned by the ICCO are now available to be downloaded from the website.

The reports, Study on the costs, advantages and disadvantages of cocoa certification, by KPMG and Étude sur les coûts, les avantages et les désavantages de la certification du cacao, by Global Business Consulting Company, both published in October 2012, can be downloaded from the ICCO documents section of the site here.

The ICCO would like to give special thanks to the Governments of the Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland, as well as to the Association of the German Confectionery Industry BDSI, for their generous contributions towards funding these essential studies of cocoa certification.
