This study aims to determine the condition of the cocoa supply chain, the value added members of the supply chain and supply chain performance measurement, and to enhance the potential performance and added value in researched area. This study was conducted in Kare Village, Indonesia. The method of determining the location was done purposively. The method of determining the sample for cocoa supply chain actors was carried out by using the Simple Random Sampling method while for collectors, wholesalers and SMEs use Purposive Sampling method include 20 cocoa farmers, 1 trade-collector, 1 wholesaler, and 1 cocoa MSMEs.

The results presented that the supply chain conditions for Cocoa in Kare Village had not been in an optimal performance. The additional value analysis showed the proportion of the added value earned by farmers was diverse.
