Realising genuine corporate responsibility

AAK, a leader in shea and sustainable Cocoa Butter Equivalents for the chocolate and confectionary sector, sought to communicate their genuine commitment to sustainability.

surface-level sustainability

Drawing from our True North at Norvell Jefferson, we understand that genuine sustainability transcends mere statements. It's a blend of strategic storytelling and tangible impacts. With AAK's Kolo Nafaso supply chain as an exemplar, it's clear that thoughtful production not only ensures top-quality shea and cocoa butter but elevates the entire community. This insight serves as our foundational starting point for ideation, ensuring benefits ripple through to customers, the supply chain, and our shared environment.

Genuine goodness resonates beyond mere words. What’s good for customers is good for the entire supply chain and the world around.

Storytelling becomes a ripple effect

Guided by the ethos of 'Making Better Happen', Norvell Jefferson's True North encapsulated AAK's broad-reaching impact through the Kolo Nafaso supply chain narrative.

Crafting tangible visual stories

Stemming from our creative concept, we meticulously developed three key visuals by manipulating existing images. These visuals became the cornerstone of our narrative, vividly illustrating AAK's commitment to sustainability, empowerment, and the broader community benefits. Beyond just telling AAK's story, these visuals were seamlessly integrated into a variety of materials, including a dynamic landing page, an informative infographic, and a versatile presentation tailored for diverse stakeholders. This ensemble not only underscores AAK’s dedication to sustainable shea and cocoa butter production but also its broader positive impact on the communities.
