Sustainable Cocoa Organisation
In March, 2012, Barry Callebaut launched “Cocoa Horizons”, a CHF 40 million cocoa sustainability initiative to boost farm productivity, increase quality and improve family livelihoods in key cocoa producing countries over 10 years.
Barry Callebaut’s cocoa sustainability team comprises 58 colleagues globally, of which 35 in Côte d’Ivoire alone. It includes trainers, ecologists, agronomists, geographers, controllers, and auditors. The team works with cooperatives to organize training and support for their farmers and their communities.
