A spotlight on cocoa

Learn more about our responsibly sourced cocoa, our commitment to supporting farmers and just a few of our delicious chocolate products

100% responsibly sourced

From chocolate bars to cakes and desserts, cocoa is a key ingredient in many of your M&S sweet treat favourites. Cocoa is usually grown in locations close to the equator, such as the Ivory Coast and Ghana, where life for farmers can be challenging due to low pay and living on smallholder farms. We care that the people that grow our cocoa are treated well, so we have had a responsible cocoa programme in place since 2016. We work with recognised schemes, such as Fairtrade, the Rainforest Alliance and Cocoa Horizons, to make sure 100% of the cocoa we use is responsibly sourced. Through the promotion of sustainable farming practices, improved productivity and community development, our aim is to invest in schemes that help improve the livelihoods of cocoa farmers and their communities.

Fairtrade works to change the way trade works through ensuring fair pricing, good working condition and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers. M&S was one of Fairtrade’s earliest supporters and continues to be one of the leading retail partners to ensure trade is ethical across our whole range, including chocolate, coffee and tea.

Investing in the future

In addition to investing in responsibly sourced cocoa, we have also partnered with non-governmental organisation, Emerging Leaders. This amazing programme helps teach workers and farmers leadership skills. More than 1,000 cocoa farmers in Ghana and Ivory Coast have completed the training and the impact has been fantastic. Participants have learnt a variety of skills, including budgeting skills and income diversification, and overall the training is helping farmers deal with the challenges they face.
