While the share was 74% in 2019 (72% in the overall German market), it climbs to around 83% in 2020 (77% in the overall German market).
Of the total 83%, 52% is accounted for by UTZ certification, 21% by Fairtrade, 8% by Rainforest Alliance and 19% by other certification and company programmes. Both for the members of the German Initiative on Sustainable Cocoa (GISCO) and for the confectionery sold on the entire German market, this shows a continuous positive trend for the share of cocoa certified according to sustainability standards since 2011.
GISCO is thus coming close to the goal that by 2025 a share of at least 85% of the cocoa in the cocoa-containing end products sold by the producing members in Germany has been certified according to sustainability standards or has been independently verified in an equivalent manner (see goal number 11).
