Transparency in Data
In the 2015 Cocoa Barometer, we are calling for more shared and transparent data. In that light, we will be providing a full justification of all the sources used, available as a downloadable Excel file, from March 6th, 2015 onwards. We welcome any and all critique and/or improvement of the database for future use.

As the major companies do not publish the profits made specifically on cocoa, margin and profit calculations for traders, processors and manufacturers are extrapolations. These are based on average margins and volumes that resulted from interviews and research conducted for the 2015 Cocoa Barometer.
