Labels & certifications
At Cocoateam, we pay special attention not only to the quality of our products but also to the social and environmental impact of cocoa cultivation in producing countries.
We adhere to the major international certification bodies for the cocoa trade but wish to go much further in our commitment to sustainability and eco-responsibility issues with separate, human-sized programs developed with our trusted partners.
Fairtrade is changing the way trade works through better prices, decent working conditions and a fairer market for producers and workers in developing countries..
Thanks to this program, producers are trained in better farming methods under better conditions. They thus obtain better harvests, better incomes and contribute to a better environment..
