CocoaAction’s vision is a transformed cocoa sector that offers a profitable way of life for professionalized and economically empowered cocoa farmers and their families, while providing a significantly improved quality of life for cocoa growing communities.

CocoaAction is a voluntary industry-wide strategy that aligns the world’s leading cocoa and chocolate companies, origin Governments, and key stakeholders on regional priority issues in cocoa sustainability. CocoaAction convenes the sector in order to align complementary roles and responsibilities, leverage scale and efficiency through collaboration, and catalyze efforts to accelerate sustainability in the cocoa sector.

The WCF member companies committed to CocoaAction include Barry CallebautBlommerCargillFerreroThe Hershey CompanyMars, IncorporatedMondelēz InternationalNestlé, and Olam.

The World Cocoa Foundation acts as the convener and strategy holder for CocoaAction, facilitating the implementation of this voluntary industry-wide strategy, driving alignment and generating new insights to amplify its impact.
