Cocoa Paper was proud to attend the World Cocoa Foundation (WCF) partnership meeting held in Washington DC on June 13 & 14, 2012.
Represented by Kate Janetski, Managing Director of PT. Community Solutions International, Cocoa Paper joined over 300 individuals to hear industry leaders speak about current issues, address some of the most important issues in Cocoa Sustainability and participate in roundtable discussions.

It is very important for Cocoa Paper to attend events like this, as we hope that more cocoa and chocolate related organizations, like the WCF, will find even more beneficial applications for Cocoa Paper as every sheet sold directly helps cocoa farmers and contributes to Cocoa Sustainability.
PT Community Solutions International and Cocoa Paper would like to thank our sponsors for enabling us to participate in one of the cocoa industries major events of the year.
