This research report outlines the journey of the cocoa bean on its way to becoming chocolate, showing how sustainability requires all actors to play their role in greening of the whole supply chain – from farmer to consumer. Insights from cocoa production in Ghana, where cocoa farming is one of the dominant land use activities, and Brazil, the largest producer of cocoa in the Americas, illustrate some of the challenges – and opportunities of sustainability.
