With sustainability being a top priority for policymakers, the European Union Deforestation Regulation (EUDR) deadline is quickly approaching. Chocolate manufacturers need to be prepared. Nestlé, a Swiss multinational, is focused on enhancing the sustainability and transparency of its cocoa supply chains through programs like the Income Accelerator in Côte d’Ivoire. However, there are challenges to full implementation, and consumers are seeking assurance that they are consuming sustainable chocolate.

Nestlé is working towards making its cocoa more sustainable through the Income Accelerator Programme, which aims to increase the income and livelihoods of cocoa farmers and their families. By encouraging farmers to adopt productive farming practices and participate in agroforestry practices, Nestlé is making its cocoa and chocolate more sustainable. Farmers in the program receive incentives for various activities, leading to traceable cocoa that can comply with the EUDR.

Traceability is crucial for EUDR compliance, and Nestlé has taken steps to ensure the traceability of its cocoa. By mapping farms and tracking cocoa from farmers to the final packaged products, Nestlé is moving towards the highest level of traceability. This enables Nestlé to monitor sustainability progress and comply with regulations, building consumer trust in the process.

Nestlé aims to source 100% of its cocoa sustainably by 2025, with a focus on segregating sustainably sourced cocoa throughout the supply chain. This commitment to transparency is essential for stakeholders and helps Nestlé meet regulatory requirements. The company’s efforts align with the EUDR standards, especially with completely traceable cocoa and segregated sourcing methods.

In conclusion, Nestlé’s initiatives towards sustainability and traceability are in line with industry trends and regulations. By prioritizing transparency and sustainable sourcing practices, Nestlé is not only meeting consumer expectations but also ensuring compliance with evolving regulations in the food and beverage industry.
