Going Further, Together

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.


At Cocoa Life, we believe partnerships are key to lasting change. Over the past ten years, Cocoa Life has strengthened partnerships with farming communities, program implementing partners, governments, non-government organizations, cocoa suppliers, external advisors, and many others. We’re working together to leverage expertise, networks and ensure effective roll-out of Cocoa Life in cocoa producing countries. To learn more about how we have been moving cocoa forward together over the past ten years, you can find the full series here.

"I´ve helped Cocoa Life to think more systemically and what it takes to change the systems involved with cocoa production. And a big dimension of this is to help convene the different stakeholders in the sector and supply chains. So we’ve worked diligently with Cocoa Life on how to bridge these gaps and the connections and build trust. "
