Good chocolate, grown right
As our program is named Transparence Cacao, we are transparent about our sourcing, our objectives and our progress so far. Our team works directly with farmers and communities to monitor our activities and follow up our indicators.

Our levels of commitment
The cocoa is carefully selected according to our Transparence Cacao standard, from cooperatives that we support in their sustainability strategy (environmental and social), in particular by training farmers in good agricultural practices.
Traceability to the cooperative is guaranteed and a Transparence Cacao premium is paid.

Our objectives & roadmap
We are pursuing the goal of 100% traceability to plots for all cocoa beans, butter and other half fabricates by the end of 2024.
In our vision Living income is a basic human right. This is for us the main principle and for this reason, we are committed to enable all cocoa farmers in our Transparence Cacao program to earn a living income latest by 2030.
In addition to our commitment to tackle cocoa-related deforestation, it is our objective to achieve 30% in Ivory Coast by 2025 and 100% agroforestry by 2030.
We aim to reduce the overall use of agrochemicals.
