Our Stories

Protecting and Restoring the West Africa’s Cavally Forest

The Cavally Forest Reserve is one of the largest of 234 classified forests in Côte d’Ivoire. In 2020, Nestlé began working alongside local people to protect and restore this dense landscape with great results.

Giving Cocoa Trees The Shade They Need

Shade trees stand as a sunblock for cocoa, allowing for moisture-rich crop spaces. So we’re distributing shade trees to cocoa farmers such as Dominic, who shares that “the results are clear for all to see.”

Adissa And Emmanuella’s School Story

Adissa and Emmanuella had never attended school. As part of the Nestlé Cocoa Plan, we support access to education by developing bridge schools. Follow their education journey here.

The Benefits of Beekeeping

Work can be seasonal for cocoa farmers in West Africa, with incomes slowing down outside of harvest periods. Beekeeping can give communities a low-space and low-expense source of additional income.
