Via our Cocoa Horizons program (today in Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, and Tanzania) we're aiming to improve the livelihoods of cocoa farmers and their communities. An activities based approach to sustainability, the program focuses on activities targeting improved productivity focused on farmer coaching, support and finance, and community level initiatives including child protection and education, women's empowerment, and health. By scaling impact and driving on-the-ground change, Cocoa Horizons is our preferred way forward in order to achieve our Forever Chocolate sustainability ambitions for cocoa.
