Mars cocoa to go sustainable – Mars Inc. announced intentions to get its entire cocoa supply certified as sustainable by the Rainforest Alliance by 2020, beginning next year with Galaxy Chocolate in the UK. The Organic Consumers Association called the move an improvement over current practices, but said Rainforest Alliance does not have the strongest standards. Mars’ announcement came a month after rival chocolatierCadbury said it would seek Fair Trade certification for its own cocoa products.
