This case study of Sulawesi's cocoa market is a counterpoint to investigations of highly regulated markets - agricultural and otherwise. The Indonesian island's rapid expansion surprised the world cocoa market, especially because it came mostly from smallholders. The authors examine the smallholders' production and marketing systems and the government policies implemented for smallholders to identify any policy lessons that might be useful for other countries.
