When we think about mobile we often see the ‘extra’ benefit. Only recently we hear companies talking publicly about their mobile-only projects; meaning the employee will only have their mobile device for work and will no longer require a PC. An unstoppable evolution.
In developing countries there is no time for evolution, things need to change dramatically fast to ensure a true sustainable economy in which all contributors benefit. “Change” in the local Baoulé language of Côte d’Ivoire is “Katchilè” and also the name of Barry Callebaut’s mobile project to record data in the ‘field’, provide feedback, do payments, …
The Katchilé project enables the Forever Chocolate strategy of the world’s largest chocolate producing company; by 2025 they have set their ambitions to eradicate child labor in the supply chain, lift more than 500.000 cocoa farmers out of poverty, become carbon and forest positive and have 100% sustainable ingredients in all products.
Mobile is changing our planet fast and making it a better place to live in, for everybody. Proud to be part of that change.
Warm greetings from the mobco team!
