Creating a fair and sustainable cocoa sector
Our challenges related to the cocoa sector
The cocoa sector faces major challenges, which is why we are building our ambitions around three major axes:
- improving the living and working conditions of farmers,
- protecting the environment
- preserving the soil and flavors.
These pillars focus on major commitments, such as improving the incomes of farmers and their families, fighting against all forms of forced labor, particularly child labor, protecting forests and biodiversity, and our ambition to be carbon neutral by 2025.
In order to achieve these objectives, we are setting up long-term partnerships with women and men who share our values working in the field within cocoa-producing companies or cooperatives. We have developed direct relationships in 14 countries around the world.
