The collapse of the Brazilian cocoa industry in the late 1980s served as a wake-up call for leading candy-maker Mars, Inc., propelling the company toward a more aggressive approach to corporate responsibility. "We realized just how susceptible the crop was to disease and pests, and that we needed to make our supply sustainable," reflects Matthias Berninger, Mars' global head of public policy. Over the last three decades, Mars' commitment to conservation and the social and economic well-being of farmers has grown exponentially. In April, Mars pledged to work toward obtaining 100 percent of its cocoa supply from certified sustainable sources by the end of the next decade. Here, Berninger talks to the Rainforest Alliance about the important decision.
