WACOT has successfully renewed its Rainforest Alliance (RA) certification, thereby strengthening its sustainable cocoa certification programme. Rainforest Alliance is the world’s largest-scale initiative to drive more sustainable cocoa farming. This reflects WACOT’s continued commitment towards addressing core challenges in the cocoa sector: farmer livelihoods, child labour, and deforestation.
The business heads have commended the cocoa sustainability team for a job well done. The commitment towards achieving the RA certification is an important step in the journey to further strengthen our sustainability programme and strategies.
We must continue to encourage and strengthen our teams, improve the quality of our initiatives, and take responsibility for all outcomes so that we give and get the highest value from all stakeholders, while staying profitable.
