Welcome to Cargill, AMEA’s newest Partner
The Alliance is growing, and we are delighted to welcome Cargill Cocoa and Chocolate as the newest member to AMEA.
Cargill Cocoa & Chocolate provides sustainable and high-quality cocoa and chocolate throughout the world, bringing its customers peace of mind, integrity and excitement. By focusing efforts equally on security, sustainability and sensory expertise, Cargill not only creates a wide range of market-leading products and services, but also builds a robust and fair supply chain, from bean to bar.
Cargill and AMEA share a common objective to help farmers prosper and improve their livelihoods in a sustainable manner.
As part of the Cargill Cocoa Promise, Cargill has committed to championing professional cocoa farming practices to strengthen the socioeconomic resilience of cocoa farmers and their communities. Cargill’s long-standing relationships with local farmer organizations form the foundation of the company's efforts to improve farmer livelihoods. Cargill works with several AMEA Partners in Côte d’Ivoire, to support farmer organizations become stronger in their performance.
“The journey towards sustainable business practices is far greater than the actions or interests of any one company. Through the power of partnerships such as AMEA, we can accelerate and magnify our efforts and achieve a level of sectoral transformation that cannot be accomplished alone. Farmer organizations and cooperatives are the cornerstone of Cargill’s cocoa supply chain. Working with – and strengthening them - is key to ensuring a secure, sustainable supply of cocoa for generations to come.”
- Suzanne Uittenbogaard, Sustainable Value Chain Manager at Cargill Cocoa & Chocolate
The Alliance is looking forward to working together with Cargill towards more effective and efficient capacity development of professional farmer organizations.
