Everybody loves chocolate – driving us to consume over 3 million tons of cocoa beans each year and creating an industry worth $117BN. However, cocoa farming is extremely fragmented – upto 90% is produced by approximately 6 million small, family farms which do not have significant resources. We aim to bring transparency, provenance and structure to this fragmented supply chain – enabling farmers to receive fair prices and faster payments whilst selling directly to the chocolate manufacturers. At the same time, we are also enabling transparent participation in providing finance the commodities sector - previously out of reach to most people.
A sustainable supply chain with innovation at the core.

Farmers deliver cocoa to one of our warehouses in Nigeria, where we check the quality and quantity.
A sponsor buys the cocoa from the farmers, helping their cash flow.
Once enough quantity has been accumulated, TFM delivers the cocoa to manufacturer.
The sponsor receives payment.Sponsor Now!
