Cocoa Guardian Program
POTECT - ENSURING FARMERS' SECURITY
In recognition of the inherent risks faced by cocoa farmers, the Sorga Cocoa Guardian Program extends a protective shield over their livelihoods. Through this initiative, Sorga commits to purchasing cocoa from partnering farmers for a specified number of years. Importantly, if unforeseen natural disasters or acts of nature adversely impact the farmers' harvest during this contracted period, Sorga undertakes to pay them 15% of the contract value for the year. This safety net ensures that farmers can sustain their families, regardless of unpredictable circumstances.
EDUCATE - NURTURING THE NEXT GENERATION
One of our primary objectives is to inspire and educate the younger generation about the importance and potential of farming. The Sorga Cocoa Guardian Program will collaborate with educators, industry experts, and business leaders to develop a unique farming boot camp. This program is open to individuals of all ages, from children to adults, who harbor an interest in farming. Participants will receive hands-on experience in every facet of the farming business, from cultivating the soil to grasping the broader agricultural ecosystem. Our aim is to empower them with the knowledge and confidence to embark on their journey as sustainable farmers and entrepreneurs. Importantly, all net revenues generated from this initiative will be reinvested in supporting the farming communities, offering an additional source of income and support.
EMPOWER - STRENGTHENING FARMERS FUTURES
Sorga Chocolate recognizes the pivotal role played by farmers in our supply chain. To empower them and their families further, we commit to providing:

Revenue and Profit Sharing: Pledging 1% of all company revenue and 5% of all company profits to be reinvested in the farming communities, enabling them to enhance their resources and enhance their livelihoods.
