Supporting farming families and their environment
We’re committed to sourcing 100% of our cocoa from sustainable sources by 2020. That’s sweeter than chocolate! We are also committed to sourcing a minimum of 30% of our coffee to certified standards of sustainably by the end of 2020.
To help us achieve this goal, we support the Rainforest Alliance, UTZ, Fairtrade and organic certification schemes, which aim to improve the livelihoods and working conditions for farmers and their families, as well as to develop more environmentally sustainable and efficient farming practices.
These programs help farmers increase the yield of their harvests, improve income and ensure safety, as well as promoting increased understanding and respect for human rights and the environment. For example, the certification program run by Rainforest Alliance in Côte d’Ivoire has meant farmers are producing better, more sustainable crops, increasing their output by 58%, and their net income by a massive 291%. It’s a win-win situation for all involved: our customers get the same great tasting products, knowing that they are supporting the environment and farming communities at the same time.
We’re proud to say that already, 100% of our flagship Moser Roth, Choceur and Dairy Fine brands of chocolate are certified sustainable. The same goes for our Just Organic tea and coffee range, as well as all the black tea in our Diplomat range. To find more certified sustainable coffee, cocoa or tea products, look out for these labels in store.
