Fairtrade welcome our commitment to help more cocoa farmers and their communities, and the charity is proud to work with our sustainability programme – ensuring farmers’ voices are heard.
Since the initial announcement, Fairtrade and Cocoa Life have already started working on a climate change programme to help farmers in Ghana respond to the threats of unpredictable weather.
Respecting and promoting human rights is a key principle to ensuring our cocoa communities are empowered and inclusive. Central to this work are our efforts to address the risk of child labour and protect the rights of children in the global cocoa supply chain. This is why, as founding members, we support the work of the World Cocoa Foundation (WCF) and the International Cocoa Initiative (ICI) to address the root causes of child labour.
We’re proud that the partnerships between Cocoa Life, Fairtrade, WCF and the ICI will change lives for the better. And make your favourite chocolate bar taste a little bit sweeter.
