Social Responsibility

Caring enough is the commitment to ‘do things better’ – not just for the business but for the world at large. We undertake multiple initiatives to strengthen communities.

- Mrs. Sandra Shroff, Vice Chairman, UPL

To see a need and to take the initiative to answer it. To see an opportunity and to develop solutions. That's what we do.

Leading cocoa growers to better yields and bigger profits.

Our range of crop protection products and yield enhancing techniques like have enabled the cocoa producers of West African regions like Ghana and other regions to not only sustain their operations, but thrive in these uncertain markets.

Along with our partner Plant Impact®, we are the exclusive marketer of BANZAI™ — the first proven crop enhancement foliar spray for cocoa — in the important West African cocoa-producing countries of Ivory Coast, Ghana, Cameroon, Nigeria and Togo. Together, these countries account for more than 70% of total global cocoa production, with more than 6,000 hectares cultivated by thousands of small-holder growers.

Success Story

I took over the plantation from my father in 2014. At first I started to do the pruning and the maintenance works with ANADER (National Rural Development Agency). I had decent yields. In 2016 Callivoire proposed me to try some of their cocoa inputs, namely the BANZAI Biostimulant. I can tell you that ever since that day, I can’t stop being amazed by the effects of this product.
