July 24, 2020 /3BL Media/ - HENRi is one of Nestlé's open innovation platforms set up to help harness the ideas and passion of external partners, especially from the start-up sector. As we celebrate HENRi's fourth birthday, I look at some of the successes that have shaped its story so far.
To continually improve what we do – and push the boundaries of what is possible with foods, beverages, and nutritional health solutions – we need to work closely with outside partners.
Today, those external collaborations are central to our pursuit of innovation.
Shedding light on our efforts to fight deforestation in our cocoa supply chains
From the road, we could see some dead forest trees emerging above the cocoa canopy. With their branchless and barkless trunks, the dead trees cut an ominous figure, contrasting with the lush green of the surrounding forest.

Climate change and biodiversity loss are on everyone’s minds these days – as they should be.

"School means success," says Paul, a 54-year-old cocoa farmer from the town of D. in southern Côte d’Ivoire. "I want my children to be successful and so I send them to school."
Doing so has not always been easy for Paul. He has 11 children now. Bringing up such a large family would put a strain on any family’s resources.

Béatrice tuts gently at her son Roméo, softly shaking her head to show him he’s made a mistake. He tries reading the word again and does better. She nods, pretending to be stern.
