By 2025 we will eradicate child labor from our supply chain

As a direct result of cocoa farmer poverty, it is estimated that there are more than 2 million children working on cocoa farms in Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana.

Biolands

By 2025 we will lift more than 500,000 cocoa farmers out of poverty

As a result of low yields due to poor farming practices, aging trees and limited access to inputs such as fertilizer and planting materials. The average cocoa farmer’s income is significantly below the World Bank’s extreme poverty line of USD 1.90/day. Such low income makes it impossible for farmers to invest in their farms, or to hire staff to work the fields.

thriving nature

By 2025 we will  be carbon and forest positive

Deforestation is one of the biggest causes of global warming. It emits carbon dioxide into the atmosphere through the “slash and burn” method for clearing forests, and at the same time reduces the amount of trees that will absorb carbon dioxide.
