    I have been working at Blommer Chocolate full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people and good benefit package, family owned, overtime availability, double time on Sundays, great at following all safety and OSHA guidelines.

    Cons

    No growth opportunities, management always hired via outsource and never promoted from within. Does not accept or acknowledge employee comments or feedback.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more employee focus as the employees are the heartbeat of the foundation. Offer more employee appreciation after Audit passings.

  • Last week, Blommer joined a meeting with his Excellency, President Akufo-Addo of Ghana at an industry luncheon in New York. Kip Walk, our Senior Director of Sustainability, joined the event which was hosted by the World Cocoa Foundation.

    Kip explains, “this was a tremendous opportunity to have a thoughtful and comprehensive dialog with the President on the future of cocoa both in Ghana and the world. Being a part of this forum underscores that Blommer is a recognized leader in the chocolate industry and in cocoa sustainability.”

    Making a case for Ghanaian and Ivoirian cocoa farmers at a working lunch with members of the WCF in New York yesterday, the President said cocoa farmers in the two countries produced about 60 per cent of cocoa beans for the world market but earned only five or six per cent of the value of cocoa beans.
