“The International Cocoa Initiative recently issued a challenge to everyone in the cocoa sector to be ‘game changers’ for sustainable agriculture. In sports, game changers surface when the result, victory or defeat, is about to be determined.
For the cocoa sector in West Africa, stakeholders are at a similar point in time. As ICI gains ever more experience in the prevention, monitoring and remediation of child labour, the need to define ‘best practice’ at this critical juncture becomes acute. Looking forward I would urge all those in the sector to pool their experiences, and to offer support to ICI’s strategic effort of defining and promoting the best methods of child protection in the cocoa supply chain – an effort that may be a cornerstone of henceforth achieving a sustainable sector.”
ICI continues to provide leadership, knowledge and expertise, helping us to build a better future for children.
