Certified by the Rainforest Alliance, Cargill’s Sustainable Cocoa Butter is sourced exclusively from Ghana, Cameroon and Côte d’Ivoire using Cargill’s direct network of known farmers and farmer organizations through the Cargill Cocoa Promise.
The Cargill Cocoa Promise represents Cargill’s commitment to securing a sustainable supply of cocoa now and in the future, whilst supporting farmers, their communities and the environment. By sourcing from this network, Cargill provides greater supply chain transparency to its customers.
Beyond its ethical and environmental credentials, Cargill’s Sustainable Cocoa Butter has plenty to offer personal care formulations. Biodegradable and 100% natural, this white, deodorized cocoa butter brings comfort to dry skin and offers a unique sensory experience compared to other emollient sources. This is due to cocoa butter’s distinct crystal structure, which results in a fast melt that leaves skin smooth and silky.
Cargill’s Marty Muenzmaier, sustainability and external affairs leader, said, “Consumer interest in sustainable, ethical sourcing continues to grow. By offering customers Sustainable Cocoa Butter, certified by the Rainforest Alliance and backed by our own Cargill Cocoa Promise, we’re providing brands added assurance that our cocoa butter was produced in accordance with internationally recognized and independent standards for sustainable production. It’s the perfect addition to our nature-derived ingredient portfolio, and further evidence of our commitment to responsible sourcing.”
