Enjoy A Better Break

We at KitKat are on a mission to go even further with our support of cocoa farmers, their families, and the local environment too. Cue: the income accelerator programme.

As we start to use cocoa from the programme across our products, you’ll see messaging to highlight this on some of our range from 2023, with the roll out to more products in 2024.
