What does this impact look like? 

Tony’s Cholonely doesn’t just make chocolate — it’s on a mission to make slave-free chocolate the norm. Its cocoa is sourced in Ghana and Ivory Coast — where 1.56 million children work under illegal conditions and 30,000 people are victims of modern slavery. To solve this issue, it works directly with cocoa farmers, for full supply chain transparency and pays them a premium to ensure they have a liveable income. Find out more.

Vita Coco offers much more than coconut water — it has built 30 classrooms in coconut growing communities, trained 7,000 farmers in regenerative & agronomic best practices, donated 6.5+ million meals to communities experiencing food insecurity, recovered 38,000 kg of plastic and avoided 12 tonnes CO2e.
