Sustainable and traceable cocoa - Part 1: Requirements for cocoa sustainability management systems (ISO 34101-1:2019)

This document specifies high-level requirements for management systems for sustainable cocoa bean production, including post-harvest processes, if applicable, and traceability of the sustainably produced cocoa beans within the organization producing the cocoa beans. NOTE 1 Post-harvest processes include pod-breaking, fermentation, drying, sorting, packing, transport and storage of cocoa beans. Only organizations that fulfil both the cocoa sustainability management system requirements of either this document or ISO 34101-4:2019, Annex A or B, and the performance requirements of ISO 34101-2 can claim their cocoa beans have been sustainably produced. NOTE 2 ISO 34101-4 specifies the requirements for cocoa sustainability management systems at entry and medium levels.
