These and other achievements were made possible by the sale of Barry Callebaut’s HORIZONS cocoa and chocolate products, Foundation donors, and Barry Callebaut contributions of yearly CHF 4 million. More details on the various accomplishments from last year can be found in the Cocoa Snapshot (see below), a biannual report. The newly released 15/16 Year-end Review is also posted on the Cocoa Horizons website.
Back in September 2015, Barry Callebaut created the Cocoa Horizons Foundation to help shape a sustainable future for cocoa and chocolate. The independent, non profit organization aims to improve the livelihoods of cocoa farmers and their communities through the promotion of sustainable, entrepreneurial farming, improved productivity and community development. The foundation recently published its year-end report highlighting the Cocoa Horizons program achievements from the 2015/16 fiscal year.
