Sustainability map: discovering the origins behind sustainable ingredients

Peru is expanding its cocoa farming practices, incorporating sustainability from the start.

Peru - Expanding the production of cocoa, sustainably

Sharing the knowledge of best practices, Peru has the advantage of incorporating sustainable practices into its still relatively new emphasis on cocoa. Seeing double digit growth annually which brings Peru to be the second largest producer in Latin America, there has been an expansion in cocoa production due to the de-emphasis and move away from discarded crops, such as coca. Through the implementation of best practices, new farms can be sustainable from the start, which increases Peru’s potential to produce a greater percentage of sustainable versus conventional cocoa
