We believe partnerships are key to lasting change. Cocoa Life is built on partnerships with governments, nongovernment organizations, supply chain partners, cocoa farming organizations, and farming communities.
In addition, we are proud to be members of these industry platforms:
Established in 2002, the International Cocoa Initiative (ICI) is the leading organization promoting child protection in cocoa-growing communities. ICI works with the cocoa industry, civil society, and national governments in cocoa-producing countries to ensure a better future for children and contribute to the elimination of child labor.
Founded in 2000, the World Cocoa Foundation (WCF) is an international membership organization representing more than 100 member companies across the cocoa value chain. WCF is committed to creating a sustainable cocoa economy by putting farmers first — promoting agricultural and environmental stewardship and strengthening development in cocoa-growing communities.
The WCF's CocoaAction strategy, launched in May 2014, brings the world's leading cocoa and chocolate companies together to work with governments, NGOs, and key stakeholders to identify and more quickly act on issues in cocoa sustainability.
