2024 Cocoa Barometer

The Cocoa Barometer is a biennial publication, with the aim of creating an up-to-date, fair, and clear overview of the state of sustainability of the cocoa sector. The Barometer looks at the sector as a whole, but also couples aggregated and disaggregated company and country data with clear visualizations and fair contextualization of challenges, commitments, and accomplishments. It is published by a consortium of civil society actors from across the globe, and hosted by the VOICE network.

In the lead up to the 2024 Cocoa Barometer, the Consortium will once again be releasing several consultation papers.

Good Purchasing Practices in Cocoa

The first of the 2024 Consultation Papers is a deep dive into Good Purchasing Practices. This document is looking at what are the principles and steps that cocoa and chocolate companies should take to ensure the way they do their core business is sustainable.
