Kennemer developed its inclusive business model as a way to source an adequate supply of high quality cacao beans from smallholder farmers. The Kennemer model of end-to-end support is designed to help farmers achieve high quality beans and high yields, enabling them to have sustained improvements in income and quality of life.

Provided a smallholder farmer follows the basic growing protocol, he can experience a 4x increase in yield.

Kennemer currently works with thousands of cacao growers in Mindanao, and parts of Visayas and aims to continuously increase this network.
