Tony’s Chocolonely: Ending Exploitation in Cocoa

Tony’s Chocolonely is an impact company that makes chocolate, not the other way around. We exist to end exploitation in cocoa – forced labour, child labour and deforestation.


This commitment isn’t just for the cocoa we source ourselves, but all cocoa sourced from West Africa. Because as sweet as chocolatey treats can be, there’s a bitter reality behind almost all of them.


More than 60% of the world’s cocoa is produced by around 2.5 million smallholder cocoa farmers in Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire. These smallholder farmers are majorly underpaid for their cocoa. All while Big Choco (what we call the industry’s major players) rakes in billions of dollars in profits. Things are so bad that most West African cocoa farmers are not able to earn a living income for their cocoa and live far below the poverty line.


Tony's Chocolonely 5 sourcing principlesTony’s 5 Sourcing Principles

Tony’s 5 Sourcing Principles put human rights at the centre of business. They help to practically address the complex issue of poverty in cocoa through concrete solutions and long-term opportunities. Our rules for fairer chocolate aka Tony’s 5 Sourcing Principles: we only use traceable cocoa beans, we always pay a higher price, we invest in strong farmers, we nurture long-term relationships, and we stay committed to quality and productivity. But no principle is principle.. all 5 must be applied together in order to ensue lasting change.
