Year of publication: 2011
SÜDWIND published several studies between 2009 and 2011 on the social and ecological grievances in the international production and trade system concerning the cocoa industry. The main focus of these studies was laid upon the influence of Germany on the international cocoa business.
To achieve an improvement on the circumstances in the producing countries with help of the research study SÜDWIND arranged a conference in April 2011 inviting participants from each production level of the cocoa industry. This was the first gathering in this vein in Germany and was held with more than 70 international representatives from different involved sectors: trade, industry, unions, politics, certificating agencies and civil society. Also two guests from Ghana participated to present the situation in their home country.
