Cocoa certification
Mars is proud to be the first global chocolate company to commit to fundamentally changing the way sustainable cocoa farming practices are advanced by aiming to certify its entire cocoa supply as being produced in a sustainable manner, by 2020.

In April, 2009, we announced a commitment to source 100,000 tonnes of Rainforest Alliance certified cocoa per year, by 2020. The company also announced that we have contracted the first UTZ CERTIFIED cocoa beans.

Mars, the Rainforest Alliance and UTZ CERTIFIED have a shared vision: a more sustainable cocoa industry, characterized by productive and profitable farms that create vibrant cocoa communities and conserve their natural assets for future generations.

Our commitment to sustainable cocoa sourcing is making a difference that is helping to ensuring the long-term sustainability of essential raw materials.
