Sustainability Commitment

Cocoa Sustainability

Mars Botanical believes in cocoa sustainability

Mars Botanical cares about creating a sustainable, certified source of cocoa from pod to product. We work closely with Indonesian farmers to plant, harvest and cultivate their fruit - ultimately increasing their profitability and improving the quality of life for local communities.


Through our cocoa sustainability programs, we are making a positive difference around the world. As a leader in research and innovation, we help bring the environmental, economic and social benefits to farmers and their communities.


For decades, Mars, Incorporated has helped bring together the cocoa industry with leaders in related fields to create and fund beneficial research programs. These programs include education and training for farmers, development of pest/disease resistant cocoa crops, and other pioneering avenues for cocoa research.


Our commitment enables us to deliver the one-of-a-kind, high-quality, cocoa extract found in CocoaVia®.
