that makes a real and long-lasting difference
The Nestlé Cocoa Plan aims to improve the lives of cocoa farmers and the quality of their products. This includes tackling child labour. With ICI, we have introduced a Child Labour Monitoring and Remediation System (CLMRS) to help address this complex issue.
Introducing the CLMRS
Community-driven, holistic and embedded into the heart of our supply chain, the Child Labour Monitoring and Remediation System (CLMRS) is a comprehensive way of tackling child labour.
In the short time since its launch, the system has proved to be highly effective. An internal evaluation conducted in 2017 (with a sample of 1,056 children) in co-operatives where the system was set up between 2013 and 2015 indicates a reduction in child labour of 51%.
This was the first programme of its kind in the cocoa industry.
