Sustainability is an integral part of the cocoa and chocolate business at Cargill. The Cargill Sustainable Cocoa Program is working to secure long-term sustainability of cocoa production and to improve the lives of cocoa farmers and their families. They have worked to secure long-term sustainability of cocoa production by teaching agricultural practices and introducing more business transparency to cocoa farmers which enables these farmers to increase yields and incomes. Cargill has trained Ivorian cocoa farmers for more than 10 years and established a network of over 1,100 farmer field schools in Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana and Cameroon that has helped tens of thousands of farmers increase yields and incomes. Their work has enabled cooperatives to obtain independent UTZ and Rainforest Alliance certification, strengthened the cocoa supply chain and supported better access to education and healthcare in cocoa farming communities.
