Navigating the EUDR Compliance in Cocoa’s Bean-to-Bar Journey at Chocoa Trade Fair
The European Union Deforestation-free Regulation (EUDR), with a deadline set on December 2024 and mid-2025, plays a crucial role in mitigating the risk of deforestation-linked commodities entering the EU market, such as cocoa. Cocoa production has emerged as a major contributor to deforestation, causing environmental degradation that encompasses climate change, biodiversity loss, soil erosion, and drought. Given that the EU imports 58% of globally produced cocoa, its consumption is responsible for 7.5% of the overall deforestation footprint.
Koltiva has actively engaged in the cocoa sector, collaborating with multinational corporations to drive a transition toward sustainable practices. Leveraging our robust KoltiTrace platform, we offer comprehensive solutions and services in navigating the global EUDR compliance, including EUDR supply chain mapping and risk assessment, deforestation mapping, legality verification, and EUDR due diligence statement.
As a Trusted Global Partner for EUDR Compliance, we are pleased to announce our participation as an exhibitor at the Chocoa Trade Fair, hosted at Beurs Van Berlage in Amsterdam. The Chocoa Trade Fair gathers businesses, experts, and cocoa enthusiasts, focusing on issues related to quality and sustainability in the cocoa industry.
