Robust Child and Forced Labor Monitoring and Remediation Systems:

We are committed to ensuring suppliers have in place robust child and

forced labor monitoring and remediation systems designed to identify,

prevent and seek to remediate cases of child labor and forced labor, as

relevant. In 2020, we expanded coverage of CLMRS to nearly 70% of

volumes sourced in Cote d'Ivoire and Ghana, across 58,000 households.

We seek to ensure 100% of at-risk families in our cocoa supply chains are

covered by Robust Child and Forced Labor Monitoring and Remediation

Systems by 2025 and anticipate that will include at least 180,000 cocoa

farming households across Ghana, Côte d’Ivoire, Cameroon and Nigeria.

We will also take action in other origin countries as appropriate.
