Operating in attractive markets with significant runway for growth

We operate in the attractive, growing chocolate ingredients market, underpinned by favorable long-term trends. Global demand for chocolate is growing, supported by rising developed markets consumption, premiumization and increasing use of chocolate in end products. At the same time, end-consumers are demanding products that are good for the planet and their own well-being and our customers are increasingly relying on established chocolate suppliers.

Our commitment to sustainability is integral to our strategy, with a long history of delivering positive impact at scale. We are committed to driving long-term systemic change toward a sustainable cocoa supply chain, with the support of our customers and to the benefit of all stakeholders. Our leadership in sustainability is evidenced by our unique program Forever Chocolate through which we aim to make sustainable chocolate the norm. Forever Chocolate is focusing on four pillars, addressing the material challenges in the cocoa and chocolate supply chain: Prospering Farmers, Human Rights, Thriving Nature and Sustainable Ingredients.
