User example of one of our Group Integrity clients

Yacao: cocoa from the Dominican Republic

YACAO is a subsidiary of the Suisse company PRONATEC. It started as a project in the Yamasá region of the Dominican Republic in 1999, aiming at producing high-quality cocoa for export while providing poor smallholders with a sustainable income. Today, YACAO buys cocoa from more than 2,000 small-scale farmers throughout the country. All of them are either already organically certified or in transition to organic production.

"Ever since we decided to use Group Integrity for our ICS, we have been in touch with the client managers from Organic Services – Javier and Gemma – on a weekly, sometimes even daily basis. Frank and Gerald, two of the directors, have also been of great support. We are very pleased with Organic Services’ customer focus and their high level of proficiency and we know that other Group Integrity users feel the same way. Keep up the good work!"

(Beat Wiederkehr, General Manager YACAO)
