Socak Katana - A cooperative union of smallholder farmers

Socak Katana

A cooperative union of smallholder farmers

Côte d'Ivoire

Socak Katana is a cooperative union owned by smallholder cocoa farmers to purchase raw cocoa beans from its members to be processed, stored and exported. The main goal is to ensure that its members receive a greater share of the profits from their crops and improve their welfare.

While cocoa cultivation is the main source of the members income, they combine it with livestock and other agricultural activities such as maize, banana and cassava cultivation.

The cooperative union has Fairtrade certification and actively promotes sustainable environmental practices.

Socak Katana was founded in 2011 and first partnered with Oikocredit in 2017.
