10 Years of Cocoa Life

In 2022, to celebrate ten years of helping lift the people and protect the landscapes where cocoa grows, the Cocoa Life team launched the ‘10 Stories For 10 Years’ campaign. We spoke to key partners from across the program – from farmers to community members, local co-operative leads to global NGOs, our suppliers to our advisors – to tell 10 stories from the past decade. These stories highlight how Cocoa Life is helping make cocoa sourcing more sustainable in key cocoa-producing countries, and demonstrate how through smart innovation and collaboration, we are helping to make cocoa right.

Cocoa Life’s mission is to lead cocoa sector transformation by driving holistic solutions that address root causes and create systemic, lasting change. We have been doing this by implementing our own integrated program in partnership with others, sharing what we've learned on the journey and by advocating for policy change. But we are all too aware of the journey ahead. Only by working in partnership with local governments, NGOs – and side-by-side with the men and women who make their living from cocoa – can we unlock lasting change. To learn more about how we have been moving cocoa forward together over the past ten years, you can find the full series here.
