Tony’s Chocolonely is an impact company that makes chocolate and fights for equality in the chocolate industry. Tony's exists to make 100% slave free the norm in chocolate. Not just their own chocolate, but all chocolate worldwide. Because the system is broken and it’s up to chocolate companies to fix it. And the only way to make this happen is by working together. Tony's raises awareness around child labour and forced labour in cocoa, because for change to happen, everyone has to be aware of current problems, possible solutions and the role we each play. Tony's leads by example by being 100% traceable from bean-to-bar, because knowing who produces the beans where and under which circumstances is the only way to take full responsibility. Tony's also pays a higher cocoa price that enables cocoa farmers to earn a living. By investing in long-term partnerships and working directly with cocoa cooperatives, as well as working on quality and productivity together with the farmers, Tony's aims to make cocoa farming structurally more sustainable. Tony's Chocolonely shows that it is possible to make chocolate differently and inspires other to do the same.
