For everyone connected through cocoa
Meiji visits cocoa production areas all over the world.
By going to cocoa production areas, we can see that there are a variety of challenges.
There are issues such as the aging of cocoa trees, the problem of pests and diseases, the difficulty of obtaining agricultural materials, and the reduction of crop yields due to immature cultivation techniques. This prevents cocoa farmers from earning enough income.
Some countries and regions also face social issues of child labor and deforestation.
