Pricing Strategies to close the Gap and the need to consider Supply Management

This webinar discusses the macroeconomic factors that must accompany higher prices to avoid the vicious cycle of oversupply and subsequent price collapses. What does the evidence show of us of successful and failed attempts at supply management? We will then dive deeper into how supply management could work in the cocoa sector, and finalise by giving an overview of strategies that, together, are critical levers to achieve living incomes for the majority of smallholder commodity producers. We heard from Yuca Warts (Wageningen University & Research) and Jason Erskine’s experience from the Canadian dairy sector on their supply management system.
