As part of measures to assist farmers, regulate sales and control quality, government came up a project called “Assainissement de la Commercialisation internal du Cacao et du Café”.
The project championed by the Ministry of Trade , primarily seeks to improve revenue and the living standards of coffee and cocoa producers in Cameroon.
Other subsidiary objectives are;
# providing storage facilities for production basins to preserve the quality.
# a systematic monitoring of the production process
#creating regular seasonal markets
#Promoting group sales
#training and sensitization producers
Through the PA3C project, the Ministry of Trade sought to restore order in the sector.
Since the inception of the project, producers from the eight cocoa and coffee regions have benefited from the project.
Twenty-one warehouses have also been constructed.
The PA3C project presently in its second phase, is financed by the Development Fund for the Coffee and Cocoa sectors FODECC to the tune of three billion CFA frs.
The first phase was carried out between the years 2008-2014 , while the second phase, that began in 2016 ends 2021.
