Transparency Sustainability Fairness

Supply chain transparency is key to sustainable agriculture.

Better informed business and environmental decisions through aggregated data

In an ever more complex world, multi-disciplinary collaboration is key to delivering environmental and business transformation. At Deloitte, it’s a rule we live by. Connect for impact, as we say. It’s how we helped Cargill, one of the world’s leading cocoa and chocolate producers, set up a data-driven digital platform that makes their supply chain significantly more transparent.

Supply chain transparency. From bean to bar.

Supply chain transparency is key to making cocoa production more sustainable and fair. The abililty to track a batch of cocoa beans back to the farm where they were grown – via cocoa bag barcodes – allows us to prevent beans from deforested areas entering the supply chain. It’s just one example of how the digital platform, named CocoaWise™, helps food and beverage manufacturers make better informed environmental, social and business decisions.

CocoaWise™ aggregates the most crucial data available in the supply chain, so that Cargill customers around the world can easily access details about where and how crops are grown and by whom. The CocoaWise™ platform basically functions as a suite for a host of data-driven tools – each one tailored to specific objectives – that allow the cocoa industry to steer firmly towards environmental and sustainability goals.

Through CocoaWise™ Cargill customers can connect more deeply to the communities from which they purchase their cocoa, allowing them to monitor first-hand the impact of their investment decisions. 

At Deloitte we’re committed to helping our partners shape their business operations in a sustainable way. That’s why we’ll further assist Cargill in rolling out digital platforms for palm products and soy crops: PalmWise™ and SoyaWise™. It’s how we make a positive impact on the environment and the future of agriculture. Together with Cargill. And together with you.
