Information is one of the most effective tools for improvement. As such, a public and informed debate on the most pressing issues is essential.

VOICE - and its predecessor the TCC - have published the Cocoa Barometer since 2008. The Cocoa Barometers give an overview of the sector and its developments, of commitments to certification, and of core pressing thematic issues.

In addition, VOICE - together with the other Barometer partners - have started publishing thematic ‘Consultation Papers’, to foster a dialogue within the sector.

All of the Cocoa Barometers, Consultation Papers, as well as supporting documents, can be downloaded at
