THE COCOA EXCHANGE™ is committed to making a significant impact in the world through the Mars Sustainable in a Generation plan. That’s why every step in our bean-to-bar process is guided by industry-leading sustainability principles and practices. When the planet, people and communities on which we rely are healthy and thriving, THE COCOA EXCHANGE™ thrives, too – and sustainable chocolate just tastes better!

Step 01 Mars was the 1st company to map the cocoa genome and share it with the world, helping to ensure the sustainability of this nourishing superfruit.

Step 03

Step 02 The key to success starts with our farmers. By helping improve their product and yield, we improve their income and livelihood while also reducing land use and environmental impact.

Mars, Inc. has pledged $1 million to CARE® to help empower female cocoa farmers in West Africa, where 70% of the world’s cocoa is sourced.

Step 04 100% of the cocoa volume for DOVE® Dark Chocolate is sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms. Mars pledges to use only certified, sustainable cocoa by 2020.

Step 05 Our products are manufactured in the US, where all Mars plants are powered by renewable wind or solar energy. All US Mars sites are also zero waste to landfill.

Step 06

Step 07

Mars remains one of the few companies to still oversee every step in the bean-to-bar process, ensuring impeccable quality.

We take great care in shipping quality products directly to you. Our products are bubble wrapped and cooled as needed to ensure they arrive in great shape.

Step 08 Every purchase from THE COCOA EXCHANGE™ supports a local business person in your community as well as a cocoa farmer, bringing the whole process full circle!

PURE DARK™ is as close to nature as we can get, with rich, complex flavors that make an authentic statement. Pure, decadent and dark, topped with roasted nuts, toasted spices and fruit powders. Each bite is elemental perfection. 20

I can bring home an income and still be an involved mom. I show my daughters that you really can have it all. – Jenn Sennett

A little passion and a little chocolate can do a world of good... At THE COCOA EXCHANGE™, we empower not only women entrepreneurs in the United States, but also those in cocoa-growing regions. We’re proud to partner with CARE®, a leading humanitarian organization that supports female cocoa farmers in Cote d’Ivoire, West Africa. By providing fair access to education and finances, we’re helping women, their families and their villages flourish, laying the groundwork for future generations of success in cocoa and beyond. When you make a purchase with THE COCOA EXCHANGE™, you’re supporting entrepreneurship in the U.S. and across the world in Cote d’Ivoire, thanks to CARE®. Now that’s a treat you can really enjoy.

Meet Marie-Paule Sibahi, one of the many women CARE® has helped. For her, CARE® is about supporting her family: “Before CARE® was here, life was very difficult. If you needed money, you had to pay back double. Now it is easier to access money and pay back the loans. That helped women become stronger…Women were able to fend for themselves and start small businesses without having to rely on their husbands. Women are now able to have money of their own.”

It’s about giving future generations the tools to succeed, like student Maximilienne Dogbo: “Last year I did not have any books, but this year because CARE®, she [mom] manages to pay my books easily. So I think the CARE® is a really good thing. It is important for me, because school will enable me to blossom, and will give me access to my everyday meals.

10% of the retail sales of each purchase of our Chocolate Martini Mix goes directly to CARE®. #1400C, $22 39
