Sustainability Practices

Blommer is fully committed to supporting our cocoa farmers and their communities. As the largest cocoa processor and ingredient chocolate supplier in North America, our goal is to support farmers to keep pace with market demand and ensure their economic viability for generations to come. To date, 80,000 farmers have participated in our sustainability programs, which adhere to the International Labor Standards. Blommer maintains a long-term view while focusing on three keys of sustainability: people, planet, and prosperity.

Ontario Canada plant locationBlommer’s Sustainable Origins™ program is focused on cocoa growing communities with the aim to enhance overall living conditions and provide tools and training to farmers. Through improved farm productivity and cocoa bean quality, farmers generate increased income which supports the creation of thriving cocoa communities.

Safeguarding the environment and preserving the planet for future generations is imperative. This is a global commitment that customers and producers entrust us to uphold. To this end, Blommer advocates for responsible environmental stewardship by providing training to farmers on agricultural practices which conserve soil and water to protect fragile tropical ecosystems.

We work to improve transparency in our supply chain by strengthening ties with our farmers to ensure fully traceable, high quality products to meet our customers’ expectations. As an industry leader, we believe sustainability efforts in cocoa communities provides value at every touch point in the supply chain through improved and more consistent quality and a sustainable future for cocoa farming families.

We proudly support our farmers and their communities through the Sustainable Origins™ program. Blommer is fully committed to improving overall living conditions for cocoa farmers, which allows cocoa growing communities to flourish while guaranteeing our future cocoa supply.
