The cooperative of organic cocoa producers of Mé is engaged in the collective certification of small producers in organic cocoa farming and Fair trade (FFL) in addition to its agroforestry production systems which participate in the reduction of carbon stock in the nature. Indeed, thanks to this cultivation system which combines cocoa with trees, the cooperative participates in the process of reducing greenhouse gases from deforestation and reducing the carbon stock in nature. By designing trees on their different cocoa plots, these small producers of the cooperative benefit from the agroforestry premium that goes to producers in addition to that of organic quality. The fair trade premium is reserved for financing the development projects of the cooperative and its community. After Biéby, the cooperative extended these activities to other villages, namely Mébifon and Diasson, with the establishment of sections, thereby increasing the number of producers to 162.

La coopérative des producteurs de cacao biologique de la Mé est engagée dans la certification collective de petits producteurs en agriculture biologique du cacao et du commerce équitable (FFL) en plus de ses systèmes de productions agroforestiers qui participent à la réduction du stock de carbone dans la nature. En effet, grâce à ce système de culture qui associe le cacao aux arbres, la coopérative participe au processus de réduction des gaz à effet de serres issue de la déforestation et à la réduction du stock de carbone dans la nature. En concevant des arbres sur leurs différentes parcelles de cacao, ces petits producteurs de la coopérative bénéficient de la prime agroforestière qui revient aux producteurs en plus de celle de la qualité biologique. La prime liée au commerce équitable est réservée au financement des projets de développement de ladite coopérative et de sa communauté. Après Biéby, la coopérative étend ces activités à d’autres villages à savoir Mébifon et Diasson avec la mise sur pied de sections augmentant ainsi le nombre de producteurs à 162.
