Established since October 2017, SCOOPS.PCBM currently has 133 producers including 18 women in the Biéby and Mébifon sections and the Diasson branch. The cooperative of organic cocoa producers of Mé is engaged in the collective certification of producers in organic cocoa farming and fair trade (FFL); in addition, these cocoa plots are rich in diversity of tree species, which makes them genuine agroforestry systems based on cocoa trees. Indeed, thanks to these cropping systems which associate cocoa with trees, the cooperative is part of the process of reducing greenhouse gases resulting from deforestation and reducing the stock of carbon in nature. By designing trees on their different cocoa plots, the producers of the cooperative are part of a PES model and receive an agroforestry premium. The fair trade premium is reserved for financing the development projects of the said cooperative and its community. The cooperative plans to sensitize women to join more and allow them to be more representative. In addition, she hopes to sign sales partnerships for other speculations, notably cola (for which is certified organic) and thus diversify these sources of income.

Mise sur pied depuis Octobre 2017, la SCOOPS.PCBM compte à ce jour 133 producteurs dont 18 femmes réparties dans les sections de Biéby et Mébifon et la succursale de Diasson. La coopérative des producteurs de cacao biologique de la Mé est engagée dans la certification collective de producteurs en agriculture biologique du cacao et du commerce équitable (FFL) ; en plus ses parcelles cacaoyères sont riches en diversité d'espèces d'arbres ce qui en fait de véritables systèmes agroforestiers à base de cacaoyers. En effet, grâce à ses systèmes de culture qui associent le cacao aux arbres, la coopérative s'inscrit dans le processus de réduction des gaz à effet de serre issue de la déforestation et à la réduction du stock de carbone dans la nature. En concevant des arbres sur leurs différentes parcelles de cacao, les producteurs de la coopérative s'inscrivent dans un modèle de PSE et reçoivent une prime agroforestière. La prime liée au commerce équitable est réservée au financement des projets de développement de ladite coopérative et de sa communauté. La coopérative envisage de sensibiliser les femmes à plus y adhérer et permettre qu'elles soient plus représentatives. Par ailleurs, elle espère signer des partenariats de vente pour d'autres spéculations notamment la cola (pour laquelle est certifiée Bio) et ainsi diversifier ses sources de revenus.
