The Cargill Cocoa Promise
We are committed to ensure a thriving and sustainable cocoa sector for generations to come
The Cargill Cocoa Promise is our program to enable farmers and their communities achieve better incomes and living standards while growing cocoa sustainably.
Our ambition is to accelerate progress towards a transparent global cocoa supply chain, to enable cocoa farmers and their communities to strengthen their socioeconomic resilience, and to deliver a sustainable supply of cocoa and chocolate products from bean to end-product.
We will achieve this ambition by leveraging our global reach and experience, and by working together with our vast network of partner organizations and stakeholders. These include 200 local farmer organizations as well as NGOs, governments and industry partners.
The evolution of the Cargill Cocoa Promise
We established the Cargill Cocoa Promise in 2012 as a formal, future-looking and action-oriented framework for our global sustainability activities, building on 10 years of experience in the field with farmers and farmer organizations.
In 2017, we introduced our Sustainability Goals, building on the impact of the Cargill Cocoa Promise while aligning our ambitions with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This framework has allowed us to broaden our scope to encompass our indirect cocoa supply chain and how we source other ingredients used to produce chocolate.
