Transforming the World of Cocoa

Cocoa Life is celebrating 10 years of lifting up cocoa communities and shaping the landscapes where cocoa grows. 10 years of working on-the-ground with partners, and the women & men who grow cocoa to help everyone benefit from the bean that becomes the chocolate we love. 10 years of innovating and taking what works to scale so we can move cocoa forward together. To celebrate this milestone, we have launched a series of stories featuring our partners that demonstrates our progress and impact to date.


Cocoa Life’s mission is to lead cocoa sector transformation by driving holistic solutions that address root causes and create systemic, lasting change. We have been doing this by implementing our own integrated program in partnership with others, sharing what we've learned on the journey and by advocating for policy change. But we are all too aware of the journey ahead. Only by working in partnership with local governments, NGOs – and side-by-side with the men and women who make their living from cocoa – can we unlock lasting change. To learn more about how we have been moving cocoa forward together over the past ten years, you can find the full series here.

"We call for all changemakers within and beyond the sector to join forces, help shift the system and do things differently to drive the next level of change."
