Satocao’s impact on the organisational, social and agronomic capacity of the village outgrowers is already visible.
Between 2011 and 2015, Satocao brought on board 68 outgrower communities encompassing 3,000 individual planters.
Satocao offers them a fair and stable market price, guaranteed to be locally competitive. The company works to ensure that even the most isolated communities are reached ensuring that they are able to sell their cocoa. The company always respects purchasing agreements and the farmers need not fear being left with unsold cocoa at the end of the day.
