Socially and Environmentally Responsible Agriculture Practices (SERAP), one of the world’s first sustainable cocoa programs, launched in 2005 in West Africa, encouraging farming cooperatives to work together to address social and environmental issues. It offers financial incentives to help implement sustainable agricultural practices and expanded into Indonesia in 2011. In 2010 ADM began to provide financial assistance to Opportunities Industrialization Centers International – Cote d’Ivoire, later donating US $125,000 for a computer lab in that country. In 2012 ADM Cocoa announced an agreement with GHN1 to bring sustainable
solutions to the village of Patalasang on the island of Sulawesi, Indonesia. Visit their website to learn more about ADM’s sustainability programs.
