We are supporting progress towards a traceable cocoa supply chain and we have implemented a strict "no sourcing' policy from protected lands in our cocoa supply chains in Cote d'Ivoire and Ghana. All the cooperatives we buy from must sign our Supplier Code and adhere to not sourcing from classified forests, national parks and reserves...We are implementing an action plan to work with farmers and communities to protect and restore restore forests, which includes partnering with Rainforest Alliance to conserve forest reserves and native habitas, and planting over one million native and shade trees/
