Our commitment: Roll out the Nestlé Cocoa Plan
By 2015 – Expand sourcing through the Nestlé Cocoa Plan in the United States to supply UTZ certified, sustainable cocoa equal to the amount needed to produce 100% of the 2015 Easter confections line of chocolates and 100% of NESQUIK® Ready-to-Drink.
By 2016 – Expand the Nestlé Cocoa Plan to include the cocoa equal to the amount needed to produce 100% of NESQUIK® powder.
The Nestlé Cocoa Plan, active in six countries, aims to improve the lives of cocoa farming communities and the quality of their crops. The Nestlé Cocoa Plan has three pillars: enabling farmers to run profitable farms; improving social conditions; and sourcing high-quality, sustainable cocoa for our products. By providing stronger plants and training farmers in better agricultural practices, we can help them improve their long-term profitability and sustainability. Accelerated activities in 2016 will allow us to achieve 100% of our cocoa sourced under the plan and UTZ certification ahead of schedule for applicable and relevant beverage, baking and confections products.
