On November 26, 2012, FLA, Nestlé and FLA’s Global Forum for Sustainable Supply Chains jointly organized a stakeholder consultation at Nestlé’s R&D Center in Yopougon, Abidjan. The consultation was an important part of the Action Plan on the Responsible Sourcing of Cocoa from Côte d’Ivoire, developed by Nestlé in response to the FLA Assessment on Nestlé’s cocoa supply chain in Côte d’Ivoire.

Representatives from Nestlé, FLA and the International Cocoa Initiative joined 38 local stakeholders for this consultation, which focused on addressing child labor in Nestlé’s cocoa supply chain in Côte d’Ivoire. In particular, the consultation sought to solicit advice and guidance from local stakeholders on Nestlé’s child labor monitoring and remediation system, with an emphasis on 1) identifying Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to measure the effectiveness of the system; and 2) the role that stakeholders can play in supporting Nestlé’s efforts.
