Flagship Initiative

The Cacaotopia is an Aster club initiative that aims to improve the lives of many cacao farm workers. By making improvements in the cocoa production value chain, we hope to empower cacao farm workers and eliminate the unethical cacao farm business practices that deprive workers of the opportunity to live a decent and prosperous life.
