Understand Your Support to Cocoa Horizons

What is Cocoa Horizons?

The Cocoa Horizons Foundation is an impact driven program focused on cocoa farmer prosperity and helping build self-sustaining farming communities that protect nature and children. The Cocoa Horizons Foundation is an independent, non-profit organization supervised by the Swiss Federal Foundation Supervisory Authority. 

How do I support Cocoa Horizons?

For each Van Leer product you buy, a premium is reallocated in your name to the Foundation. 100% of those premiums directly support the Foundation’s activities within a clear set of goals and strict supervision. 

Having a neutral impact is not enough.

Our Van Leer products are reliable. They are easy to work with and bring consistent taste and texture to your applications, but we have to do more than that. They are also making sure our activities have a positive impact on the planet, the life of farmers and the health of consumers.

You are part of the solution!

Answering the sum of challenges the world faces is our collective responsibility. By using Van Leer products, you are making a difference! You are protecting the environment and the people cultivating the cocoa we use in your products. The Van Leer choice is a choice for biodiversity on farms, for protecting forests and for partners using more renewable energy in our production.
