All Tesco own-brand chocolate to be Rainforest Alliance certified

Cacao on tree

Tesco will source all the cocoa for its own-brand chocolate products – including biscuits, cakes, desserts and cereals – from Rainforest Alliance certified farms by the end of 2018.

"We are delighted Tesco has made such a deep commitment to sourcing Rainforest Alliance certified cocoa," says Nigel Sizer, President of the Rainforest Alliance.

"Tesco's commitment will have a significant impact on improving the social, economic, and environmental wellbeing of cocoa farming communities."

As well as adding the Rainforest Alliance frog seal on chocolate packaging, Tesco says it is improving the transparency of its supply chains with British farmers such as potato growers.
