Services - Guidelines

We are the leading contract authority within the cocoa trade, supporting, encouraging, and promoting high standards in commercial relationships. Our standard contracts are used throughout the global cocoa economy enabling companies of differing sizes, strengths and capabilities, to benefit from the solid contractual platform that we provide which allows market participants to navigate through and secure their place in the cocoa market.

By having representatives from all areas of the trade involved we aim to provide a balance of contracts. Through this perspective, we seek to maintain and enhance a contract platform which reinforces integrity in the market, whilst being inclusive of different sector needs.
