Congratulations to Rainforest Alliance for 25 Years of Promoting Sustainability

A moment to wish the folks at Rainforest Alliance congratulations on the 25th anniversary of their organization, which was feted at a gala held on May 16th in New York City.  Having won their “Sustainable Standard Setter” award last year, we were honored to co-chair the event with our supply chain partners ECOM.  The gala was held at the Museum of Natural History and Mars Chocolate’s Cocoa Certification 2020 team, a cross functional team managing our certification program, was there to celebrate.

The president of Rainforest Alliance, Tensie Whelan, discussed the transition that the organization is making into a more mainstream mode of operation.  Throughout the evening, there were opportunities to discuss the future of sustainability with leaders from a range of organizations, from multi-national corporations to Rainforest Alliance Certified farm owners.  Rainforest Alliance, who is one of the three certification organizations we are working with, raised $1.6 million through this event.  We are already looking forward to next year’s gala!
