Peru Cacao Alliance

The Alliance Cacao Peru, with the support of USAID, promotes the fine and flavor cocoa as an opportunity of sustainable business and vehicle for social inclusion of families in the amazonian region.

USAID Public-Private Cocoa Alliance Transforming Rural Peru

The Peru Cocoa Alliance will integrate 23,000 small-scale agricultural entrepreneurs into inclusive, sustainable value chains that will facilitate profitable, licit sources of income to prevent a return to coca production in the Peruvian regions of Huánuco, Ucayali, and San Martín, while also increasing rural standards of living.

Bringing buyers and farmers together, the Peru Cocoa Alliance will propel Peru to become the market leader in traceable high-quality cocoa, which is increasingly in demand by regulation and consumers. The Peru Cocoa Alliance will make this possible through rigorous attention to good agricultural practices and environmental protection and mitigation to ensure the protection of the country’s rich biodiversity and natural resources.

USAID’s support of $36 million began in October 2012 and is planned through 2016. Initial private investment totals $49 million and is expected to continue to grow for decades to come, incorporating thousands more Peruvian small famers into global supply chains.
