Together with The Cocoa Horizons Foundation, Darrell Lea is helping to make things better …

At Darrell Lea, we love making chocolate, which is why we are proud to announce that we have partnered with the Cocoa Horizons Foundation to make things better for cocoa growing communities. Our partnership with the Cocoa Horizons Foundation to purchase 100% of our cocoa raw materials sustainably means that our chocolate now not only tastes good, but also does good.

The Cocoa Horizons Foundation is an independent, not for profit organisation committed to working collaboratively with cocoa growers to create self-sustaining farming communities with prospering famers, no deforestation & zero child labour.

Programs focused on achieving this outcome include:

  • Improved agriculture practices to increase cocoa product quality, farming productivity & farmer income
  • Community development programs focused on literacy & improved cocoa farming business skills
  • Empowerment of women
  • Child protection & child labour monitoring programs
  • Access to safe drinking water & sanitation projects

The Cocoa Horizons sustainable cocoa programs are currently improving the livelihoods of cocoa farmers & their families in Ivory Coast, Ghana & Tanzania.
