Gerkens® AM70 responds to the growing market trend of provenance and a desire for traceability. An ingredient’s back story is often more important than the ingredient itself.
With a unique flavor profile determined by the soil, the climate and farmer know-how in Ivory Coast, AM70 has a very rich story to tell.
At Cargill we are investing over $100 million to expand our cocoa processing site in Ivory Coast. This investment will create 85 full-time local jobs and hundreds of indirect jobs.
As part of our long history in sustainability efforts, over the next three years we are working to further expand sustainability and supply chain traceability programs in the country. The programs will enhance the safety and well-being of children and families in cocoa farming areas and provide a more transparent, traceable cocoa supply chain for customers and consumers.
The sustainability and supply chain investments in Ivory Coast are taking place as part of the Cargill Cocoa Promise: the company’s corporate commitment to improving the lives of cocoa farmers and their communities.
