About the Organizers
The International Cocoa Organization (ICCO) is an inter-governmental organization established in 1973 under the auspices of the United Nations and operating within the framework of successive International Cocoa Agreements.
The Organization comprises 51 Member countries, of which 22 are cocoa-exporting countries and 29 are cocoa-importing countries. These Member countries together represent 92% of world cocoa exports and 80% of world cocoa imports.
The ICCO seeks to promote and support the economic, social and environmental sustainability of the cocoa value chain, and particularly to improve the living conditions of cocoa farmers. It acts as a center for knowledge and innovation on the World Cocoa Economy; a platform for institutional cooperation, fostering dialogue among its Member countries and between key stakeholders in the cocoa value chain; and as a source of technical assistance for its Member countries.
