In the first edition of Confectionery Live in January, Co-Founder of 60 Decibels Tom Adams spoke about whether cocoa farmers were thriving or surviving and how they were able to measure impact utilising their Farmer Thriving Index. In this session with Ellie, she speaks to Editor Caitlin Gittins in more depth about their Index, exploring the challenges and issues cocoa farmers are facing, as well as the importance of measurable data and making it understandable and accessible.
By watching Ellie’s session, you will learn about key findings from 60 Decibels’ Index and the crucial nature of harnessing data to understand impact.
