This year we have invested carefully to build the resources to support and promote our farmer partners, with our team working hard on trading and to implement significant programmes in coffee, cocoa and nuts.
As always, we have looked to strengthen our six-pillar approach and, in response to our partners requests, we have specifically invested our capacity under the Business Management pillar, recognising the importance of establishing and maintaining strong financial management, strategic planning and access to capital. We believe these are the primary building blocks of any sound business.
While coffee remains the backbone of our trading activities we are excited about the potential we are seeing in cocoa. We can see the relevance of our model for cocoa farmers and have seen an increase in opportunities to develop programme offerings and trading activities. As ever, I would like to thank everyone working at Twin, both in the UK and across the globe and look forward to ever increased impact and passion as we go forward.
