Cocoa:

The Federation made an investment into a women-owned chocolate making company based in Kenya. This company was sourcing cocoa beans, with claims of Ugandan origin, from a supplier based in Kampala, Uganda. After further investigation, it appeared these beans were coming from the Democratic Republic of Congo. This supplier was not able to provide any documentation to reaffirm Ugandan origin nor proof of legal export from the DRC, therefore, all contracts were immediately terminated with this supplier.
