Corporate Responsibility - integral to the way we do business (15/9/2009)

Jos de Loor - Managing Director Cargill Cocoa & Chocolate

We are really excited to be sending you this special feature newsletter to announce that - two of the co-operatives that we have been working with in West Africa are the first to be independently audited and certified by UTZ. This achievement is a real tribute to the efforts of our team in Côte d'Ivoire and the management and farmers of these co-operatives.

At Cargill Cocoa & Chocolate we believe that Corporate Responsibility is an integral part of doing business. For us, it embraces not only our own operations but also the wider communities in which we work and serve. Our presence in all the leading cocoa producing countries allows us to oversee the total supply chain in the country of origin. As a result, we have been among the first to initiate a wide variety of activities to ensure that the cocoa is grown in a sustainable and responsible way and to the highest possible quality.

Many of our customers have shown a growing interest in sustainability and responsible sourcing so we aim to share with you more news of our many activities in this area over the coming months. If you have any queries in the meantime, your account manager would be more than happy to provide you with an update on our different initiatives.
