Bloomberg BusinessWeek Looks at a Day in the Life of a Cocoa Sustainability Manager

As part of a series highlighting popular post-MBA jobs, I had the privilege to share some of the great work Mars Chocolate is doing with a piece focusing on a day in my life as Cocoa Sustainability Manager. The article in Bloomberg Businessweek is a great way for people to get a closer look at what goes into producing and nurturing sustainable cocoa practices. Being a Sustainability Manager is a rewarding job, and BusinessWeek shows the public that the sustainability work at Mars is real, deep and meaningful.  Just like my colleagues on the cocoa sustainability team, my guiding principle is (and has always been!) putting farmers first.  Much of my work is entails collaborating closely with Mars field staff, scientists, and non-profit organizations that help farmers on the ground to increase cocoa quality and production and to better their living standards. We understand that the best yields come from healthy, productive plants— working with farmers and implementing sustainable practices at the ground level ensures a healthy, productive model for success in the cocoa industry.

    Thanks Shayna for honoring the work of all the Cocoa Sustainability Managers as well as all the passionate chaps that work in putting our motto “Farmers First” into action.

    You picked the key elements too. Health and Productivity through efficient Trainings will definitely ensure the sustainability of cocoa involving generations.
