Assessors did find that some of the farms supplying to the tier-2 supplier had achieved a third-party sustainability certification for their cocoa from either Utz or the Rainforest Alliance.

Finally, the FLA recommends that Nestle and its tier-1 and tier-2 suppliers work together to make needed improvements at supplier farms and communities that will improve the quality of life for farmers and workers and improve working conditions at the farms. Implementing such recommendations would begin to bring Nestlé’s full supply chain under the requirements of its established Workplace Code of Conduct.
