Cocoa Compass, ofi’s ambition to make the future of cocoa more sustainable, has won the Sustainability Innovation Award at Food Ingredients Innovation Awards 2022, Paris.

Winners were chosen by an expert judging panel, for their contributions to the food and beverage ingredients industry. Cocoa Compass sets challenging goals to tackle the key issues facing cocoa-growing communities and achieve a future in which farmers can earn a living income, children come first, and the natural world is protected.

The judges said data showing the measurable impact of sustainability actions played a part in their decision. Cocoa Compass has provided on-the-ground support to over 270,000 farmers in nine countries through sustainability programs, running in partnership with our customers, and enabled actions like rolling out child labor monitoring and remediation systems across all programs.

Gerry Manley, chief executive officer and chief sustainability officer, ofi cocoa and ofi respectively, said, “We launched Cocoa Compass to help tackle some of the biggest challenges in cocoa. We're delighted that Fi Europe has chosen to recognize the progress made. It is a testament to the hard work and dedication that our teams around the world put into creating a better future for cocoa farmers and the natural world every day. There’s more to do, and I look forward to working with our customers and partners towards our 2030 goals.”
