Sustainably sourced cocoa

Cadbury is proud to announce a new partnership with Fairtrade to support the roll out of Cocoa Life to Cadbury Dairy Milk products in 2018.

The new partnership between Cocoa Life and Fairtrade builds on a relationship established in 2009, with Fairtrade becoming a partner for the Cocoa Life program.

Through a US$400 million investment, Cadbury is working with Fairtrade to secure a positive future for 200,000 farmers and one million community members in six key cocoa growing countries by 2022.

What is Cocoa Life?
Cocoa Life is an industry-leading, independently verified program that will ensure the future of Cadbury chocolate for generations to come.

Cocoa Life's Vision:
We believe in creating empowered thriving cocoa communities as the essential foundation for sustainable cocoa.

Cocoa Life's fast facts:

  • Cocoa Life has already been rolled out across more than 795 cocoa farming communities around the world, helping them across education, healthcare, infrastructure and other priorities.
  • Independent verification shows that farmers’ in the Cocoa Life program in Ghana have seen their incomes increase 49 per cent more than farms outside the program.
  • Alongside Fairtrade, Cocoa Life is also actively supported on the ground by other NGOs including Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO), Save The Children, CARE International, World Vision, and Solidaridad.

This means that whenever you buy any of our plain Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate products available across our bars, blocks, sharepacks, and Fundraising range, it will not only taste good, but make a difference too.

Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate will remain Fairtrade certified throughout 2017 in Australia. From 2018, you can expect to find the Cocoa Life logo on the front of Cadbury Dairy Milk wrappers, symbolising the adoption of our sustainability program across our core chocolate range.
