Good Inside and Out

While we source our cocoa from Côte d’Ivoire, many of our products are made right here in Canada. We put tremendous effort into ensuring they’re made using quality ingredients sourced in a responsible way.

It All Starts in the Cocoa Farming Communities of West Africa

Côte d’Ivoire is responsible for approximately 40% of the world’s cocoa production. There, cocoa is far more than just a tree. It’s a way of life for those who farm it and a vital part of the communities that rely on it. As part of Nestlé’s ongoing commitment to sustainable sourcing, we continue to work hand in hand with rural communities, leading NGOs, local government and over 40,000 farmers to improve quality of life in cocoa farming communities.

Nestle Cocoa Plan

Through the Nestlé Cocoa Plan, we train farmers in better agricultural practices, improve access to education for children in farming communities and distribute hardier higher yielding plants. The program focuses on 3 key pillars:

A Kid's Place is in School

The Nestlé Cocoa Plan is invested in improving access to education. That’s why we’ve partnered with NGOs and local organizations to build 42 schools in Côte D’Ivoire and make school access easier for over
10,000 kids.

At Nestlé, we believe child labour has no place in our supply chain, however we know there are children working on farms in Côte d’Ivoire, in areas where we source cocoa. No company sourcing cocoa there can guarantee they’ve completely eliminated that risk, but we are determined to tackle the problem – and that begins with access to better quality education.

42

New and improved schools mean a better future is possible for children.

193,000+

Community members and farmers educated on child labour issues.

In addition to supporting the Nestlé Cocoa Plan efforts mentioned above, Nestlé Canada is providing school supplies and equipment to increase quality of education for over 1,500 children.

We're Stronger Together

It wouldn’t be possible to make progress without our partners –grassroots organizations, NGOs, farmer groups such as co-operatives, as well as government bodies and private companies.

International Cocoa Initiative

The International Cocoa Initiative helps us in our efforts to eliminate child labour and increase child protection.

Fair Labor Association

The Fair Labor Association does deep dive audits into the labour conditions on farms supplying us and publishes the results together with our actions.

UTZ Better Farming Better Future

Farmers and farmer organizations are audited to see if they are up to the UTZ standard. Certification gives consumers added assurance that the cocoa was produced with respect for people and the planet.

World Cocoa Foundation

The World Cocoa Foundation pulls together chocolate companies and cocoa processors to work together for the benefit of farmers.
