Ferrero Joins UN Effort To End Cocoa Deforestation
Confectionery company Ferrero has joined a global effort to end deforestation at its cocoa production hubs in Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana.
The company said it has committed to the ‘Frameworks for Action’ set out at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP23) in Bonn. The goal of the framework is to improve forest protection and restoration, sustainable cocoa production and farmer livelihoods.
Chocolate and cocoa companies will implement verifiable monitoring systems to better trace cocoa from the farms to the first purchase point for their own purchases of cocoa.
