Farmforce Makes Sustainability Strides at Amsterdam Cocoa Week

Farmforce recently concluded a successful week at Amsterdam Cocoa Week, the leading global cocoa and chocolate industry event. Our presence at the event reaffirmed our commitment to Sustainability, Compliance, and Operational Excellence – the cornerstones of everything we do.

This year’s event highlighted a crucial shift in focus: traceability systems are evolving beyond physical tracking to encompass robust sustainability measurement and monitoring. Farmforce is well-positioned to meet this need, integrating practices that tackle child labour, deforestation, and living income into our comprehensive traceability solutions.

EU regulations (EUDR) dominated industry discussions, with 90% of conversations centred around its implications. Experts anticipate an extension beyond December 2024 due to unpreparedness in key EU countries. Farmforce remains ahead of the curve, ensuring our solutions are fully EUDR-compliant and ready to assist clients in navigating this evolving landscape.

Beyond technical discussions, Amsterdam Cocoa Week offered a distinct feeling of increased openness and engagement. Companies actively sought us out, eager to collaborate and explore how Farmforce could enhance their sustainability efforts and operational efficiency. Our ability to connect with LatAm clients through Spanish-speaking team members further strengthened these connections.

The steady stream of booth traffic throughout the week underscores the industry’s growing recognition of Farmforce’s professionalism and impactful presence. As the industry embraces change, Farmforce stands ready to continue driving sustainability, compliance, and operational excellence across the cocoa supply chain.

Join us on our journey as we build a better future for cocoa!
