What is the RCC?
The aim of the RCC is to be a pre-competitive group that supports existing industry efforts to drive environmental and social improvements in the cocoa sector. The RCC consists of ten members, and was founded in 2018 through the World Cocoa Foundation.
What does the RCC do?
The principle activity of the RCC is the Annual Trader Assessment. This is a robust process whereby major traders of cocoa, voted for by RCC members, are assessed on progress in cocoa sustainability, covering topics such as deforestation, traceability, gender equality, farmer incomes and child and forced labour.
