Way forward for CECOFA
- Seeking support for a Grading machine. This will save a lot of time wasted in primary processing and improving value addition on the part of the farmers because now they will be paid depending on the grades/ screens which will encourage our farmers to improve on quality and to get more money./ CECOFA will also gain much more in fulfilling its contracts in time.
- More working capital to increase the volumes currently being accomplished ( current capacity is 100 containers of certified ; 4C and Fairtrade) However, sometimes this is not realised due to limited financing
- Increasing the number of farmers from the current 3,664 members to 5,000 members by 2020. This can be achieved though more premium projects as well as encouraging replanting
