Barry Callebaut is part of the ‘Forever Chocolate’ movement. Its aim is make sustainable chocolate the norm. It’s our belief that we create the biggest impact with teams that work in situ with the cocoa farmers. Besides procuring 100% sustainable chocolate and ingredients, Barry Callebaut has made itself a three-pronged aim by 2025: (i) to ban child labour from the supply chain, (ii) to take more than half a million cocoa farmers out of poverty and (iii) to become carbon and forest positive.
The project of William Sweetlove and Stephan Destrooper – two leading figures in their respective industries – fits seamlessly with our corporate philosophy. It’s a story that we – as Belgian chocolate-makers – our happy to put our backs into.
