As Fairtrade expands in Ghana, important questions arise in relation to the capacity of cocoa cooperatives and farmers to benefit from Fairtrade certification; and with respect to impactful ways for Fairtrade and partners to engage with these resource-poor stakeholders in response to the constraints they face at the beginning of the value chain. This report offers insights into these questions by exploring the overall context in which Fairtrade operates in Ghana, as well as
the capacities of four recently established Fairtrade-certified cocoa cooperatives and their members.
