About Us

The idea to set up an organization to represent the cocoa society in Indonesia was initially raised in the second Cocoa Development and Trade Fair in Surabaya on 26-28 November 1984.  The organization was intended to be the medium to share vision and formulate strategic action towards cocoa business development. However, it was only on 11 April 1988 in Jakarta following senior level efforts to the cocoa society and government that a committee to set and launch the cocoa organization was founded to formalize the cocoa organization.

Soon after, on 18 February 1989, Indonesian Cocoa Association (INCA) was established through the supports of Minister of Trade Dr. J. Soedrajad Djiwandono and Minister of Agriculture, Dr. Sjarifuddin Baharsjah.

The membership of INCA includes all segments of cocoa business: growers/farmers, traders, exporters and processing industries.  Therefore, INCA was the first agricultural commodity association established in Indonesia which covers the mainstream and downstream industries.

INCA also hold open, familiar, fair and effective attitudes in attaining its objectives, and is efficient in implementing its program and formulation of its organizational structure.

INCA’s secretariat office is based in Indonesia's capital city of Jakarta.
Regional offices and boards have also been established in six provinces to cover the activities throughout the country.  They are in North Sumatera, Lampung, Jakarta, East Java, South Sulawesi, Central Sulawesi. Today, INCA’s membership extends to 96 members.
