Food safety and ethical issues are now an integral part of the cocoa industry. All cocoa planted by ourselves or supplied to farmers is mapped using GIS technology. This enables us to track all cocoa from the land, to the factory door and finally put into jute bags.
This system also allows us to register information such as planted varieties, any fertiliser and spray applications, yields etc. and thus provide invaluable feedback to our own management team and our farmers to improve management techniques.
