100% SUSTAINABLY SOURCED COCOA
Cocoa Life is the programme run by Cadbury’s parent company, Mondelez, in all of the countries where we source our cocoa.
Cocoa Life has been running since 2011 and touches many aspects of life for communities in cocoa regions – from farming techniques, to looking after the environment and supporting the local economy.
All this is done through working together with local people, so that everything happens in a way that is right for the area and can continue for years and decades to come.
This means that 100% of the cocoa used across all Cadbury chocolate made in Australia is sustainably sourced, and by 2025 we’re aiming to be able to say the same for all Cadbury products.
