Cadbury Cocoa Partnership

A 10-year partnership to enhance the welfare of cocoa farmers and communities and to guarantee the sustainability of quality cocoa.

Cadbury Cocoa Partnership

In 2008, the Cadbury Cocoa Partnership was launched to encourage the development of thriving cocoa communities in Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Caribbean. The Cocoa Partnership is a £45 million ($73 million) commitment to sustainable cocoa farming. Through this initiative, the Cocoa Partnership will promote sustainable livelihoods for one million cocoa farmers; increase cocoa crop yields 20 percent by 2012, and 100 percent by 2018.

To date, the partners are working in over 100 cocoa communities in Ghana to provide the necessary training and technical skills, to provide access to finance, to improved community infrastructures, and to promote new business ventures.Moreover, the partnership provides farmers a dimension of fair trade. Working with the Fairtrade Foundation, the communities will benefit from the fair certification that can guarantee a fair price of their beans. In return, communities commit to source their produce to Cadbury Diary Milk bars.
