TRANSPARENCE CACAO was developed by the Group CEMOI with the support of THE FOREST TRUST (TFT) organization, of which it is officially a member, and which accompanies numerous companies on their sustainable development strategy concerning topics such as palm, soy or wood.
TFT is an international non-profit organization that helps companies and communities launch responsible products on the market.
TRANSPARENCE CACAO is revolutionary for the cocoa sector. Few companies are capable of knowing 100% of their farmers, and of stating such a traceability goal. This ambition has its place within the continuity of CEMOI values: quality is built with people, on site, starting with the field. This is about actively developing a network, instead of passively collecting a raw material. TFT is proud to be able to help CEMOI implement its vision, and our teams are already active on the field.
