For 30 years, the Rainforest Alliance has been a global leader in the conservation of forests and natural resources while advancing sustainable livelihoods. Such success can only be accomplished through strategic partnerships with players along every link in the supply chain, from producers to large multinational companies. The Rainforest Alliance is pleased to recognize businesses and individuals committed to protecting the environment, implementing climate solutions, and supporting communities across the globe. Awards will be presented to honorees on May 10th in New York City, at the Rainforest Alliance’s 30th Anniversary Gala Celebration at the American Museum of Natural History. “To come as far as the Rainforest Alliance has in 30 years, we needed the strength of partnership,” said Nigel Sizer, President of the Rainforest Alliance. “Today, we recognize individuals and companies who are addressing some of the most significant challenges humanity has ever faced. These champions are working with us to protect forests and support farmers and communities across the world, affecting real change.” During the day on May 10, honorees and co-chairs will join CEOs, business and thought leaders, and Rainforest Alliance experts at the annual Leadership Summit to discuss strategies for implementing global sustainability and climate goals. Following the summit, participants will gather in the evening for an awards dinner, entertainment, and a silent auction. The gala is co-chaired by long-term Rainforest Alliance friends and supporters Maggie Lear, Tessie Nedelman, Laura Ross, and Cathy Taub, and sponsored by Domtar. Gala proceeds benefit the Rainforest Alliance’s international work in sustainable agriculture, forestry, tourism, human rights, and climate change. The Rainforest Alliance recognizes Felisa Navas Pérez, a three-term president of Asociación Forestal Integral Cruce a La Colorada (AFICC), a forestry concession in the Maya Biosphere Reserve (MBR) in the Petén region of Guatemala. Navas assumed her leadership role shortly after the concession’s board president was murdered, presumably by drug traffickers who want to control local lands so they may clear forest for livestock operations (which in turn serve to launder money). While nearby concessions have collapsed, AFICC has remained solvent and certified under Navas’s leadership. Corporate Sustainability Champions award recognizes companies who have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to sustainability, improving livelihoods, and conserving forests all around the world.

LONDON, Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CocoaVia® cocoa extract food supplement will be available for online purchase to consumers in the United Kingdom and Ireland, beginning in February 2017. Consumers can visit CocoaVia.co.uk or Amazon.co.uk to purchase bottles of 90-count cocoa extract capsules, with each three-capsule portion of the supplement delivering 375 mg of cocoa flavanols. Globally, there is a growing interest from consumers in cocoa and the phytonutrients found in cocoa, notably the cocoa flavanols. This interest is driven by the increasing body of evidence supporting the vascular benefits related to the consumption of cocoa flavanols. Cocoa flavanols help maintain the elasticity of blood vessels, which contributes to normal blood flow, with a minimum daily consumption of 200 mg cocoa flavanols required to support these benefits*. Cocoa flavanols require special care to preserve, as they are easily damaged by heat and humidity. Since fermentation and roasting are key steps in traditional cocoa processing, most cocoa processing destroys cocoa flavanols. Mars, Incorporated has dedicated over two decades of research to cocoa flavanols, and in doing so, developed its proprietary Cocoapro® process, which preserves the flavanols found naturally in cocoa beans. "We are excited to expand our distribution to the UK and Ireland to provide more people with the opportunity to experience the benefits of CocoaVia® food supplement," said Julie Talbot, Marketing & Sales Director, Mars Symbioscience, makers of CocoaVia® supplement. The European distribution comes on the heels of the expanded U.S. distribution to 7,800+ Walgreens locations nationwide, which occurred in October 2016. *Health Claim approved by Commission Regulation (EU) 2015/539. This claim has been licensed from Barry Callebaut Belgium NV for use. CocoaVia® food supplement does not contain any chocolate, nor is it derived from chocolate. It is processed in a completely different way. Cocoa beans are usually fermented and roasted in the process of making chocolate. In many cases, they are also alkalized. These processes can destroy many of the beneficial flavanol compounds naturally found in cocoa. To make the cocoa extract in CocoaVia®, Mars Symbioscience uses a proprietary process that preserves the flavanols in their purest form. This process, called Cocoapro®, begins in Indonesia with the quick-harvesting and drying of the cocoa beans. Then, from these unroasted cocoa beans, the flavanols are carefully extracted. This means consumers can enjoy the benefits of cocoa flavanols in a product that is convenient to use every day with far fewer calories, fat, and sugar than conventional chocolate. Pioneering some of the most innovative and breakthrough fundamental scientific research, and with sustained funding from Mars, Incorporated, Mars Symbioscience was established in 2005 as an internal technology-based health and life sciences venture area to develop and commercialize new products and services supported by evidence-based science. To date, Symbioscience has successfully incubated, introduced and transitioned five technology platforms in the areas of food, plant, biomedical and life sciences, including Wisdom Panel®, (www.wisdompanel.com), a range of complex canine genetic tests for breeders and veterinarians and, CocoaVia® (www.cocoavia.com), a revolutionary new cocoa flavanol extract-based dietary supplement that promotes healthy blood flow from head to toe and thus ultimately supports cardiovascular health in people.

Mars, Incorporated is a private, family-owned business with more than a century of history and some of the best-loved brands in the world.
