We were deeply concerned by the incidents documented in the Dispatches programme. We explicitly prohibit child labour in our operations and have made significant efforts through our Cocoa Life programme to help improve the protection of children in the communities where we source cocoa, including in Ghana. We strongly refute any allegation that Mondelēz International benefits from child labour.
Our efforts continue to focus on understanding how we can provide support. As part of our Cocoa Life programme, we work with community members and NGO partners to set up Child Labour Monitoring and Remediation Systems (CLMRS) in Ghana to help provide assistance to vulnerable children.
Mondelēz International does not tolerate any form of retaliation and we continue to communicate that to our supply chain partners.
