Through Cocoa Life, we are transforming our cocoa supply chain.

Launched in 2012, Cocoa Life is investing $400 million USD by 2022 to empower at least 200,000 cocoa farmers and reach one million community members. This effort builds on the Cadbury Cocoa Partnership, which was founded in Ghana in 2008. It's all part of our commitment to ensure a sustainable future for chocolate.

Cocoa Life helps communities thrive in six key cocoa-growing origins―Ghana, Côte d'Ivoire, Indonesia, India, the Dominican Republic and Brazil. We are helping them gain knowledge and skills to improve their livelihoods, strengthen their communities and inspire the next generation of cocoa farmers.

Cocoa Life: Global Program Introduction
Our Principles

To deliver on our mission, we have five principles that guide all our actions:

Increase transparency, by connecting consumers to cocoa growers

Promote self-sufficiency by building knowledge and skills within cocoa communities

Make greater impact through transformative partnerships

Respect human rights, focusing on child rights and promoting women's empowerment

Increase business advantage by ensuring a sustainable supply of cocoa for Mondelēz International's much loved brands


Through our three areas of intervention, we will grow opportunities together.

Cocoa Farming as a Prosperous Business
Working hand-in-hand with cocoa farmers to make cocoa farming a business of choice. We help farmers become more productive, so they can increase their income from cocoa.

Empowered and Inclusive Cocoa Communities
Empowering the men, women and youth within cocoa communities to lead their own development and improve their livelihoods through entrepreneurship.

Forests are conserved and restored
Protecting and restoring the land and forests where cocoa is grown, together with the farmers and communities.
