Hershey to invest $500M for cocoa programme


The Hershey Company has created a new sustainable cocoa programme called Cocoa For Good, and the company will invest up to $500 million by 2030 to help support the programme.


Cocoa for Good will help to address issues such as poverty, vulnerable ecosystems and poor nutrition among its cocoa farming communities through investments and collaborative programmes.


One of the core aims of the programme is to protect forests and ecosystems through innovative agroforestry methods, in order to preserve the cocoa-growing ecosystem in its supply chain.


Cocoa farming communities in countries such as the Ivory Coats and Ghana are integral to Hershey’s chocolate production.
