“The CLEF ELAN initiatives are complementary to the existing Ferrero Farming Values Cocoa program. In this program, Ferrero is working to enable children in cocoa-growing communities a joyful growth by providing access to quality education and basic facilities like sanitation and hygiene and good nutrition. For many years already, we have been working closely together with our suppliers and main partners like the NGO Save the Children. Because only together, we can ensure a better future for children and advance the elimination of child labor. Being a family company with strong values, Ferrero is proud to contribute to this partnership with the Jacobs Foundation, the government of Côte d’Ivoire and other cocoa and chocolate companies, which we believe will have a meaningful and lasting impact, on our direct supply chain and beyond. ”
