Discover the Cargill Cocoa Promise Sourcing Partner Network
At Cargill Cocoa & Chocolate, we believe that making real, lasting progress on sustainability requires maximum transparency and traceability across the cocoa supply chain. Our digital capabilities are moving us closer to that goal.
As a leading cocoa and chocolate company, we have a commitment to transparency and traceability. But we also believe that how we share that information, and ultimately our impact and progress, is as important as what we disclose. As our traceability capabilities evolve alongside new digital technologies, we remain committed to sharing our learnings publicly and in new and engaging ways to move the industry forward together towards a more transparent and sustainable cocoa supply chain.
To that end, our interactive Cargill Cocoa Promise Sourcing Partner Network map shows the name and location of the 147 cooperative offices in Côte d’Ivoire and the 13 buying stations in Ghana and the 12 buying stations in Cameroon belonging to our direct sourcing network in these countries. Each of these farmer organizations benefits from Cargill Cocoa Promise programs. We will update the map in the future with information about our direct supply chain in other origin countries as part of our ongoing drive for increased transparency.
Data-driven insights and learnings like these are the result of our ongoing investments in GPS farm mapping and satellite data, which we carry out in partnership with a range of organizations, such as the World Resources Institute’s Global Forest Watch Pro platform. We also believe that establishing a joint understanding with relevant stakeholders is key to informing strategies for transforming cocoa supply chains to be more sustainable – free of deforestation and child labor and ensuring farmers can thrive.
