Social responsibility

At JS COCOA we are serious about our responsibilities

JS COCOA is committed to being an excellent steward in terms of economical wellbeing, socially and ecologically.

Quality, health & safety

We are FSSC22000-certified, meeting all regulatory requirements and quality criteria. Our laboratory closely monitors our products and production processes. We see to it that our teams operate in a safe environment.

Adding value to our companies and network

Via our fully owned company Resigha Ltd. in Ghana, JS COCOA contributes actively to community development in Africa in the form of financing electrical power, road improvement, public lavatories, water wells, and micro finance.

In Ghana, we offer our brokers incentives that ultimately improve the quality of life. The incentives are bonuses as part of a loyalty programme. They are distributed annually at a Durbar (gathering), and can vary from Wellington boots, clocks and radios, to roofing sheets, bicycles, televisions, and even motorcycles.

We also work with a savings system as part of our commission. Our brokers save 20% of their commission, which can be collected at the end of the season. In addition, we act as micro-financiers by giving small loans. As a result our brokers, many of whom have worked with us for more than 25 years, have built new homes, or have invested in taxis, carpentry workshops, shops, or other small enterprises.
