We think it is important that our products make a positive contribution to everyday life.

HEMA uses UTZ-certified chocolate for all its chocolate bars. The chocolate is a West African blend from the Ivory Coast and Ghana. In the Ivory Coast, the world's largest cocoa producer and where most UTZ-certified cocoa is grown, farmers are taught how to increase their productivity and improve the quality of their products. This helps the farmers and their families generate a better income.

At HEMA, it’s not only our chocolate bars which are UTZ certified - all our chocolate meets the requirements of this quality mark. By using this chocolate, we are playing our part in trying to improve the position of farmers in developing countries.
