Can you imagine your life without Chocolate? 

Yes this is a very real possibility in the near future. Cocoa is rapidly declining worldwide largely due to pests destroying the cocoa beans and diseases killing the tree itself. 

A world without cocoa is not a pretty picture.

If the current situation continues, it is believed that cocoa will become so expensive only those with deep pockets will be able to afford to buy it. 

Following that, cocoa will disappear. With unproductive cocoa trees riddled with pests and dying from diseases, farmers will have no choice but to replace cocoa with other crops, such as maize (corn), in order to survive. 

While many companies, governments and organizations are working hard to prevent this grim future, it is our responsibility as cocoa and chocolate consumers to join in the fight for cocoa sustainability. Keep Cocoa Here! 

 

How can YOU join in the fight for cocoa? Simply by choosing to use Cocoa Paper products for your home and office stationery supplies. Every sheet of cocoa paper sold directly benefits cocoa farmers and contributes to cocoa sustainability by teaching farmers how to better manage their cocoa trees. 

When cocoa is gone will you regret not acting when you had the chance?
