Ferrero signed the Frameworks for Action to end deforestation and restore forest areas in the cocoa producing countries of Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana. As a part of these Frameworks in Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana, the chocolate and cocoa industry will put in place verifiable monitoring systems in order to trace the cocoa from the farms to the factory. The industry will also work with the governments of Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana to ensure an effective national framework for traceability for all traders in the supply chain. At the same time, Ferrero remains dedicated to its ongoing work to map 100% of its cocoa supply chain, as well as to its partnerships to improve the livelihood of farmers and their communities with partners like Save the Children and Fairtrade & Cooperative Union ECOOKIM.
