ACDI/VOCA is a private, international development nonprofit organization based in Washington, D.C, United States. Incorporated in 1965, ACDI/VOCA’s mission is "to promote economic opportunities for cooperatives, enterprises and communities through the innovative application of sound business practice". ACDI (Agricultural Cooperative Development International) was formed in 1966 by major U.S. farm cooperatives. Its principal objective was to provide expertise and support to cooperative enterprises in developing countries. ACDI helped found IFFCO, Indias largest fertilizer company, re-established cooperative banking in Poland, and set up large business-oriented farmer organizations in East Africa, including the cooperative unions in Sidama and Yirgachefe, Ethiopia, that enabled direct export of coffee from those regions.
