CÉMOI

CÉMOI is France’s biggest chocolate manufacturer. It sources cocoa in Ivory Coast – the biggest cocoa exporter in the world – and aims to work with all the farmers in its supply chain to gain a thorough understanding of the practices they use and help them improve those wherever it makes sense. To achieve this TFT has supported CÉMOI to develop its ‘TRANSPARENCE’ programme through which CÉMOI is committing to ensure traceability from the consumer’s chocolate bar to the significant volumes of beans CÉMOI buys. To put this context, CÉMOI’s annual cocoa bean spend represents 3% of global cocoa bean purchasing. Therefore its announcement  is hugely relevant, as supply chain traceability in the industry remains an issue.
