COVID-19 cacao production and trade flash poll
The Fine Cacao and Chocolate Institute (FCCI) has created the following survey to capture information on the impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on specialty cacao production and trade. The information collected will be used to help guide responses from stakeholders in the specialty cacao and chocolate supply chain.

For those operating specialty cacao production and trade businesses who complete this survey, we anticipate being able to direct community support in three areas:
- targeted information dissemination
- immediate needs-matching
- network building (growing infrastructure for cacao producers and traders and potential partners to support one another in the longer term)

FCCI is working with partner organizations to identify resources to assist specialty cacao and chocolate businesses during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We intend to share these resources in the coming weeks through our newsletter, so please subscribe to our newsletter using the following link: https://chocolateinstitute.org/newsletter/

We seek 1 completed survey per organization. If there is another person at your organization who is better suited to answer the poll, please forward this survey link to them.

**We encourage responses to the poll by this Tuesday, April 14, by 5 PM EST.

**All individual answers will be kept confidential. Response data will be shared in the aggregate.
