CocoaAction is a commitment by cocoa and chocolate companies to work together towards a truly sustainable cocoa industry.
CocoaAction is a strategy to coordinate and align the cocoa sustainability efforts of the world’s
largest cocoa and chocolate companies to increase their impact and contribute to building a rejuvenated and economically viable cocoa sector, for no fewer than 300,000 cocoa farmers and the communities where they live, by 2020. The strategy will focus on Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire, which together provide about 55% of the world’s current cocoa supply, and will later be extended to other cocoa producing countries.
As of May 20, 2014, the companies that have committed to CocoaAction are:
- Barry Callebaut
- The Hershey Company
- Mars, Incorporated
- Mondelēz International
WCF acts as the convenor for the group and facilitates the implementation of the industry-wide strategy. The governments of Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire have formally endorsed CocoaAction as the industry’s aligned effort to support their national cocoa sustainability plans.
