On April 27, 2019, at our head office and the production site of our premium chocolate, we celebrated Monggo’s 14th birthday under the slogan “Lebih Asyik, Tanpa Plastik!”. The theme was chosen to further support the movement of reducing plastic waste, which is responsible for the devastating impacts on our environment.
“Chocolate Monggo has been reducing the use of plastic ever since the brand was founded, but this year we are especially dedicated to reducing our consumption of plastic. One of our concrete actions is to reduce the use of plastic in our packaging. For example, we use aluminium foil and FSC-certified paper that is easily decomposed, for all our 40gr and 80gr packaging. Customers are also given a paper bag when purchasing Chocolate Monggo, instead of receiving their products in a plastic bag” said Steffen Hitscher, Marketing Manager of Chocolate Monggo.
A series of events were held during the 14th anniversary of Chocolate Monggo “Lebih Asyik, Tanpa Plastik!”, including the planting of cocoa trees (Theobroma Cacao) around our neighboorhood in Kotagede, recycling workshops and for charity, we invited orphanages to create their own chocolate. Besides, we completely banned plastic from the event.
