About Mondelēz

Proudly making an impact on our communities.

Without cocoa and the next generation of cocoa farmers there is no chocolate.

Through our Cocoa Life program we aim to create empowered cocoa farmers in thriving communities across our supply chain. Cocoa Life is an industry leading, independantly verified program.

What is Cocoa Life?

Cocoa Life is Mondelēz International’s global cocoa sustainability program. Cocoa is the essence of our chocolate and vital to our business, so we ensure it is ‘made right’.

Making it right means tackling the complex challenges that cocoa farmers face, including climate change, gender inequality, poverty and child labor.

Cocoa Life is addressing these challenges on the ground, working hand-in-hand with the men and women who make their living from cocoa, focusing on where we can make a difference: turning cocoa into a business of choice, creating inclusive and empowered communities and educating on forest conservation and restoration.

In doing so, we are growing opportunities for cocoa farmers and their families, by tackling all of these problems together.

By 2025, all Mondelēz International’s chocolate brands will source their cocoa through Cocoa Life.

“Cocoa Life is on a long-term journey to create a vibrant, strong cocoa supply chain while growing opportunities that transform the lives and livelihoods of farmers and their communities. We believe that empowered, thriving cocoa communities are the essential foundation for sustainable cocoa.”
