This is 2020 and since 2001 you have been talking about removing child labour from your supply chain, that will soon be 20 years! We recognise efforts have been made and that Cocoa Life (https://www.cocoalife.org/) program is making progress.
Now it is time to put it all together!
We are asking for your commitment to a CLMRS (Child Labour Monitoring and Remediation System) on 100% of your sourcing farms in West Africa to be brought in as soon as possible. We recognise what you have been doing with this as a part of your Cocoa Life Program particularly in the dimensions of community development.
We also believe a commitment to paying a price for the cocoa above the Government Living Income Differential (LID) and the regular certification premiums, will be a key further step to prevent child labour and forced labour abuse.
We look forward to you publishing robust commitments around these matters.
We are also encouraging people to email and thank you for your leadership on Community Development as a part of the Cocoa Life Program.
Thank you in anticipation
