TESTIMONIES OF THE
ALLIES OF THE AGREEMENT

"We are one of the most united chains that works with a common vision and I believe that is what has allowed us to achieve the most important challenge we face in the next half century and there we face a complicated challenge: 20 years ago, the average production size of a cocoa producer was more or less half a hectare; today it is more or less three hectares. We have had a more forest-intensive and less technology-intensive production and I think that is the challenge we face going forward.
JOSE ITURRIOS
Cacao Peru Alliance
"The public sector is also committed to joining this initiative (the agreement). Proof of this is that in this planning process for the development of the cocoa and chocolate value chains, the commitment to deforestation-free cocoa has been considered within the framework of the Cocoa, Forests and Diversity Agreement, which is already part of the National Action Plan for Cocoa and Chocolate Development".
AUGUSTO APONT
Regional Director for Agriculture and Agroecology, Ministry of Agrarian Development and Irrigation
"For cocoa producers, we believe that (the agreement) is in line with the global context, which is occurring in the sector and especially with organic production standards and sustainable production standard."
ANAXIMANDRO ROJAS
President of the Association of Small Cocoa Producers APPCACAO
"The Peruvian cocoa sector generates around 300 million in exports. However, we must be aware that in recent years there are some trends at the international level with respect to regulations regarding sustainable cocoa. Right now, the European Union is discussing sustainable production schemes. Peru has a lot of experience in sustainable production, since organic production has been in place for several years.
LUIS MENDOZA
Manager of the Peruvian Association of Cocoa Producers (APPCACAO)
