Ovaltine and the International Cocoa Initiative

We are proud to be a Contributing Partner of the International Cocoa Initiative

ICI Children

On 1st January 2013, Twinings Ovo, the makers of Ovaltine joined the International Cocoa Initiative (ICI). Established in 2002, the ICI is a unique partnership between civil society and the chocolate industry, working together with the authorities in cocoa-producing countries to improve the lives of cocoa farmers and their families. As a new Contributing Partner of the Foundation, Twinings Ovo will contribute to ICI's core programme of work by:

  • improving children's access to quality education, including the construction or rehabilitation of basic school infrastructure, provision of education materials and facilitation of teachers' placement
  • creating a protective environment for children
  • improving access to basic services, such as health care, water or sanitation in remote communities
  • enhancing the sustainability of livelihoods in cocoa-growing communities, by promoting enhanced agronomic techniques to increase farmers' cocoa yields, as well as supporting livelihood diversification and vocational training

We look forward to helping make a difference to children's lives. Because we know, like you, that it's the right thing to do.
