Farm Services programme: evaluation of labor brigades

Deadline for submissions is Monday 10th May 2024.

The Farm Services programme is a set of initiatives delivered by Barry Callebaut in two cocoa co-operatives in Cote d’Ivoire: COOBADI and COOPAZA. The Farm Services programme is part of the Cocoa LIA (Living Income Accelerator), a portfolio of programmes funded by Ben & Jerry’s (B&Js) which builds on their sourcing commitments to support and strengthen smallholder producers in their supply chains to accelerate their journeys towards a living income.

While the Farm Services programme has been running since 2017, a labor initiative was launched in 2023, designed to jump start pruning at scale. The purpose of this assignment is to evaluate the labor brigades pruning initiative.

Fairtrade Foundation is seeking a consultant(s) to evaluate this labor brigades pruning initiative. The consultant will develop a detailed approach in consultation with Fairtrade Foundation, Fairtrade Africa and our partners, before collecting, analysing and submitting the findings in a written report.
