Since 1965, the Cocoa Life initiative in India has helped over 100,000 farmers understand and embrace the art of cocoa growing. Today, the firm obtains a major portion of its cacao demands from within India , and it is the largest individual corporate body dedicated to nurturing and promoting cocoa production. The project stems from the company's worldwide mission of transforming the living standards of cocoa people in rural areas, as well as inspiring the upcoming age.

Cadbury trail is the most favorite chocolate of youth in India and nobody can beat that. Cadbury Dairy Milk, Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk, Cadbury Bournville, Cadbury Dark Milk, and Cadbury Temptations will now have the Cocoa Life emblem on the front of their boxes, according to Mondelez India, one of India's major snacking companies. In India, the Cocoa Life initiative is the firm's pledge to source ecological cocoa for chocolate production. In addition to India, Mondelez International's Cocoa Life initiative helps people prosper in six important cocoa-growing origins: Ghana, Côte d'Ivoire, Indonesia, the Dominican Republic, and Brazil.

Cocoa Life has worked on the ground with men and women who make a living from cocoa to turn cocoa farming into a tenacious firm, fruitfully propping up over 188,000 farmers out all over six major cocoa-strewn countries, constructing inclusive environments, and ecological integrity through its interventions to date. Cocoa Life will be the supplier of cocoa for all Mondelez International chocolate brands by 2025. Cocoa Life now supplies 68 percent of the total cocoa volume for the company's chocolate brands.

“Cocoa Life expands on our rich heritage and nearly five-decade relationship with India's cocoa farming community by allowing us to obtain cocoa beans locally in India. We aim to go beyond just being a customer and become a fully dedicated partner for all of our cocoa growers and their communities through this initiative. We also expect India to play a key part in the larger plan of expanding the program internationally so that by 2025, all chocolate brands would be able to get their cocoa from Cocoa Life.” Mondelz International's Cocoa Operations Lead - India, Roopak Bhat, stated.

In 1965, Cadbury established a demonstration farm in Chundale, Kerala's Wyanad district, to promote cocoa production as a viable cash crop. From the early 1970s until the present, Mondelez India Foods Private Limited has been planting cocoa on a commercial basis in India (Formerly Cadbury India Ltd.) The Indian states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, and Karnataka are the primary producers of cacao. Cocoa farming in India began in the 1970s when CPCRI brought cocoa to the southern region ( Central Plantation Crops Research Institute in Kasargod, Kerala -Cacao research facility by supported by government)

Cocoa is a tropical crop that originated in the Amazon basin and expanded to nations within 15 degrees of the equator on either side, including Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean Islands, South America, West Africa, and Southeast Asia, where the growing conditions were optimal. Today, West Africa leads global output, followed by South East Asia.
