Milka stands for quality chocolate and the use of the highest quality ingredients such as Alpine milk. This brand promise is now supported by joining the Cocoa Life program as well as ensuring that no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives are used in the chocolate used in Milka products.
Cocoa Life’s mission is to create a strong cocoa supply chain while transforming lives and livelihoods, addressing deforestation and building resilience to climate change across six cocoa origin countries:
Independent verification has shown that in Indonesia’s Cocoa Life communities, farmers’ annual income increased 37 percent and cocoa yield 10 percent.
“As one of the world’s largest chocolate manufacturers, we reach millions of consumers with brands such as Milka,” said Weber. “We want to use this scale to drive positive change for the communities on which we depend, and to work with farmers so we can continue to build strong relationships for the long term. Now more than ever, our consumers care about their food and want to know that what they’re eating is sustainable.”
