The manifold challenges on the road to #ForeverChocolate

Date
A recent study revealed the challenges cocoa farmers face in Côte d’Ivoire. These are manifold, difficult to overcome and stem from the fact that a majority of farmers still live below the national poverty line. We summarized the reports’ insight into an infographic, which also is indicative of the KPI’s we will continue to track in our Cocoa Horizons program.

It's time to take bold steps forward!

Date
There is no chocolate without cocoa. But looking at the social and productivity challenges of cocoa farmers in West Africa - the largest supplier of cocoa in the world - we have to be brutally honest and ask the question: Will we still have enough cocoa in 20 years to satisfy chocolate demand? Will there be chocolate forever? That's why we, Barry Callebaut, decided to confront these challenges head on and commit to four bold targets to make sure there is 'Forever Chocolate’. Let's have a closer look at today’s challenges in West Africa’s cocoa supply chain and how we think we can address them!
