Our Responsible Policies

Responsible policies are also essential to meeting our commitments. This is why we have placed environmental and societal issues, as well as the transparency and traceability of our products, at the heart of our strategy.

Child Labor Policy

Child labor is a major problem facing the entire cocoa and chocolate sector. It is our belief that action must be collective if is to have the greatest impact, which is why we have joined the International Cocoa Initiative (ICI). This foundation dedicated to protecting children in cocoa-growing communities works to secure a better future for children and their families. Learn more about the practical action we have undertaken to fight against child labor in our 2021 Declaration on Combating Child Labor.


Our Responsible Purchasing Charter

We’ve made a mutual commitment with our suppliers by signing the Responsible Purchasing Charter.

This charter describes the commitments that we expect from all of our suppliers in terms of labor rights, ethics, environmental protection, risk management and food safety.
