Belgian fairtrade dark milk chocolate with pretzel and toffee, with 42% minimum cocoa solids,  made in Belgium.

Pretzel? Yummy. Toffee? Yes please. Dark milk chocolate? Say it ain't so! Put crunchy pretzel pieces with a sweet toffee crunch in dark milk chocolate with 42% cocoa, wrap in a purple wrapper and we have ourselves a new flavor!

We've used 133 cocoa beans for this product.

Things aren't being shared evenly in the chocolate supply chain. The chain starts with millions of farmers who produce cocoa and ends with the billions of consumers who enjoy chocolate. But what about the bit in the middle? This section is dominated by a handful of chocolate giants that profit from keeping the price of cocoa as low as possible. As a result, farmers are forced to live in poverty. And that leads to illegal child labour and modern slavery.

Almost everywhere in the world, chocolate lovers are provided for with a wide range of flavours to enjoy. Big chocolate companies make -next to a lot of chocolate of course-  a lot of profit. Nothing wrong with that, without profits a company will go bankrupt. So far, so good. However, less good is how those profits are made - by exploitation at the start of the value chain, where people live in extreme poverty. Have you ever considered how much a cocoa farmer makes per day?

  • 2,5 million farms in Ghana and Ivory Coast produce more than 60% of all cocoa worldwide.
  • The average cocoa farmer in the Ivory Coast earns 78 euro cents a day. There’s no way you can live off that or support a family for that meager amount, not even in West Africa.
  • In Ghana and the Ivory Coast, 2.1 million children work under illegal conditions because the harvest doesn’t give their parents enough income. We don’t think that’s normal.

Worse still, recent studies have confirmed that at least 30,000 people are the victims of modern slavery – adults and children who are being forced to grow cocoa and don’t get paid a penny for it. In fact, it’s highly likely there are far more victims than that because areas where cocoa is produced illegally have not been included in the studies.

The system works like this: Big Choco – the chocolate makers – buys the cocoa at the front of the cocoa mountain. They don’t look on the other side of the mountain; they can’t see the living conditions of the farmers who grow ‘their’ cocoa. They refuse to take real responsibility for the problems of the farmers on the other side of that mountain. And you might be thinking “Alright, so what about certified cocoa beans?” They don’t guarantee humane conditions either.

The world market price of cocoa fell by 40% in mid-2017 thanks to a good harvest and market speculation. In the Ivory Coast, the price guaranteed to a farmer for his cocoa fell by almost 40%. So, the decrease of the farm gate price (still) has a tremendous impact on the lives of farming families in the Ivory Coast. The price drop offered major advantages further along the chain. Big Choco saved around $ 4.7 billion in buying costs. So.. where did all that money go? Now that’s a good question. We certainly didn’t notice any price reductions (except our own price reduction in stores..). So, yes, that does give chocolate a bitter aftertaste in our humble opinion.

Right now there is slavery on cocoa farms in West Africa. This is a result of the unequally divided cocoa chain. Tony’s Chocolonely exists to change that. Child labour and modern slavery are against the law - it's illegal and it needs to stop.

Tony’s 5 rules of the game for slave-free cocoa

Over the last few years we've been working on Tony’s Chocolonely's rules of the game for slave-free cocoa. At this point we are confident that it enables cocoa farmers to earn a living income. And that will put an end to modern slavery and illegal child labor on cocoa farms in West Africa.

Our recipe for slave free cocoa has 5 rules. We believe chocolate companies need to include all 5 rules in their relationship with the cocoa farmers. (Of course the same applies to suppliers of other ingredients.) And – and this is very important – all 5 rules are needed. That’s next:
1st rule:

Rule #1 traceable beans

Tony’s cocoa beans (used for both cocoa mass and cocoa butter) are fully traceable, and that makes us pretty unique. We purchase them directly from our partner cooperatives Kapatchiva, Ecojad, Socoopacdi and ECAM in Ivory Coast and ABOCFA in Ghana. That means that we're able to guarantee that the beans in our bars come from one of our partner cooperatives. The members of our partner cooperatives have steadily increased their cocoa production since we first started all of this. An adequate planning and accurate estimations of the amount of required beans, are very important in order to achieve this increase. And Tony’s Beantracker ensures we know exactly when our beans are being transported and from which cooperative they are coming from.

Rule #2 a higher price

How it works: an additional premium:

Until there is a sustainable solution for the ongoing low cocoa prices, we bridge the gap between the floor price the farmer gets and the living income he or she should earn with Tony's premium. Tony's premium consists of two partsL the Fairtrade premium and the additional Tony's premium. The premium is determined at the start of the chocolate season, based on the minimum farmgate price determined by the governments of Ghana and Ivory Coast. At that time we check if our data on farming costs and livelihood are still correct. This way, we can adjust the premium in a way that the farmers we work with are being paid a decent income, enabling them to provide for their family.

Tony’s premium over the 2017/2018 season was $ 400 per tonne cocoa in Ivory Coast and $ 175 per tonne cocoa in Ghana. These figures are on top of the Fairtrade premium of $ 200 per tonne cocoa also paid by Tony's. In the past season, we worked with 5.021 farmers who got paid these extra premiums.

Rule #3 strong farmers

We invest in the cooperatives we work with and help to make them stronger. We show them how to operate more professionally as an organization, help them achieve economies of scale and create commitment and trust amongst the farmers. Strong cooperatives offer many benefits for farmers. For instance, they can negotiate a better price when buying production resources collectively. Farmers who are not members of a cooperative often experience way more difficulties. We are proud of the commitment shown by the farmers we work with. There's always a huge turnout at the annual general meetings in both Ghana and Ivory Coast. Talk about a full house! We ensure that delegates from Tony’s are there too, so we can get to know the farmers even better and see that our premium is being put to good use.

Rule #4 the long term

We work with farmers for at least 5 years. That way they know they'll receive the Tony’s premium for their harvest for the next few years. That gives them the opportunity to make long-term investments in their farms. For example, they can buy new cocoa plants for a better harvest for example, or invest in farming equipment or training. As a result of our long-term relationship, we see that the farmers are now more aware of the consequences of child labor. There are projects that address issues such as child labor and farmers’ rights, like the Child Labor Monitoring and Remediation System (CLMRS) which surveys the cooperatives and helps improve living conditions for farmers. Before we can start talking about eliminating illegal child labor or modern slavery, it's necessary to create supportive conditions in the community.

And by the way, in our collaboration agreement there's a transparancy clause. We think it's absolutely fine that cooperatives share our agreement with other potential buyers. This way they can That way they can negotiate the same commitment and agreements. And..drumroll! This year we saw results. The cooperative ABOCFA has won Taza Chocolate and Uncommon Cacao with longterm commitments for their biological cocoa. We're superhappy with that!

Rule #5 improved productivity and less dependency on cocoa

Not only does the price of cocoa need to be higher, but so does the production. Everyone has to take responsibility for our recipe to work. A good farmer supported by a professional cooperative that achieves economies of scale, should be able to produce 800 kilos of cocoa per hectare. Yet many farmers only produce 30% to 40% of what we think should be possible. This means they miss out on income. Also, the quality of the beans is often poor – many beans don't even get exported. The Tony’s premium encourages farmers to improve their crop. As their farms become more profitable their motivation increases. A win-win! It also enables them to invest in production resources, like better fertilizer, in pruning their trees at the right time and planting new cocoa trees. This increases the quality of their beans and can double their productivity. Of course, we’re realistic enough to realize that while this can happen relatively quickly, it doesn’t happen overnight. That’s why we work with farmers for at least 5 years. 

In short, motivated farmers with basic training and a willingness to cooperate and invest more time in their farms can easily harvest 800 kilos per hectare versus the 350 to 550 kilos they currently harvest.
