Nestlé Cocoa Plan

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.

Our Progress

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.
