Dec 15, 2014

The Barry Callebaut Group announces that its Cocoa Horizons Truck passed the symbolic milestone of 10,000 km and reached 33,000 participants, less than a year after the start of its journey into remote cocoa growing areas of Côte d’Ivoire. Last week, the truck passed the 10,000 km mark between the villages of Obrouayo and N’Drikro, in southwestern Côte d’Ivoire.

The Cocoa Horizons Truck is equipped with modern communication material powered by solar energy. It acts as a stage where Barry Callebaut’s own training experts animate farmer training sessions in good agricultural practices, literacy training and child labor sensitization programs, in addition to evening entertainment. Where needed, a nurse is also on board to provide basic health care, such as medical consultations and common medicines. More than 4,000 people have already benefited from such a medical visit.
