Cocoa Life is Mondelēz International’s global cocoa sustainability program.
Cocoa is the essence of our chocolate and vital to our business, so we ensure it is ‘made right’. Without cocoa and the next generation of farmers, there is no chocolate. Through our Cocoa Life programme, we aim to create empowered cocoa farmers within thriving communities across our supply chain. Cocoa Life is addressing challenges on the ground and focusing on where we can make a difference as an industry-leading programme that is independently verified.
Who is impacted by Cocoa Life?
Through Cocoa Life, we are transforming our cocoa supply chain.
Launched in 2012, Cocoa Life is investing $400 million USD by 2022 to empower at least 200,000 cocoa farmers and reach one million community members. This effort builds on the Cadbury Cocoa Partnership, which was founded in Ghana in 2008. It's all part of our commitment to ensure a sustainable future for chocolate.
WHO verifies The impact?
To verify our impact on farmers and through communities and measure progress towards our goal of sourcing all our cocoa sustainably, consistent evaluation is needed. Two independent third parties—Ipsos and FLOCERT—keep us on track.
