Olam Food Ingredients (OFI) claimed its cocoa division has achieved 100% child labour and deforestation monitoring in its direct global supply chain, covering almost 183,000 households and 12,000 suppliers, respectively.
Olam Cocoa is launching a new premium cocoa business, Twenty Degrees. By giving remote cocoa producers market access the company will be able to offer ‘artisanal products with a unique flavour and story’, business head Leopold Palmer told FoodNavigator.
Olam Cocoa has today (24 October) launched Cocoa Compass, a new sustainability initiative that establishes the company’s responsible sourcing goals to 2030. FoodNavigator caught up with CEO Gerry Manley to find out more.
