Kennemer sells high-quality fermented cacao internationally that it sources from thousands of smallholder farmers across 33 provinces in the Philippines. KFI’s integrated model proactively increases the productivity of each cacao farmer by 4x by providing access to high quality planting materials (seeds), farm inputs (fertilizers), ongoing technical training, financing, and global markets, with a guaranteed off take of a minimum of 70% of the cacao world market price. As a result, the model helped smallholder farmers’ income increase by 300-600%.
