Jeff Morgan has more than 40 years of experience in the global cocoa sector. Prior to joining the Sucden Cocoa Sustainability team in August 2019, Jeff worked for a major manufacturer of globally known chocolate brands. In that capacity, Jeff was instrumental in developing a major cocoa sustainability program. In his career, Jeff has focused his energy primarily on the social elements of sustainability – especially child labor. Jeff was a technical advisor to the cocoa industry group that developed the Harkin Engel Protocol in 2001 and worked closely with producer country governments and the ILO to investigate the fundamental aspects of child labor in the cocoa sector. Jeff has served as the Co-President of the International Cocoa Initiative (ICI) and on various working groups within the World Cocoa Foundation. Jeff currently is a member of the European Cocoa Association’s Sustainability Working Group.
The event aims to share knowledge and exchange best practices on how to eliminate child labour in key value chain sectors exposed to increasingly global challenges.
