Creating a fair and sustainable cocoa sector
Our challenges related to the cocoa sector
Our products’ main ingredient – cocoa – is facing a growing number of social and environmental issues for which it is our duty to respond if we want our cocoa-producer partners’ businesses to develop and flourish over the long run.
Producers’ living conditions, deforestation and climate change are some of the threats we are confronted with. Cocoa’s value chain is complex, not least because cocoa is produced in the Global South but consumed in the Global North. Good supply management and traceability represent challenges of their own.
