THE CHANGE WE MAKE


The latest Facts & Figures on the farmer groups we work with

Having teams present in the field has helped us to better understand the farmers that grow our cocoa. These cocoa craftsmen provide us with a raw product that’s sustainably sourced, and fully traceable from farmer to warehouse. Meet some of the farmer groups we work with.

100% of our farmer groups respect and sign:

Supplier Code
The Cocoa Horizons Convention
The Child Labour Charter
A Declaration that cocoa is not and will not be sourced from protected forests
