There are a number of different cocoa programs and labels available, including Rainforest Alliance (now merged with UTZ), Fairtrade International, organic certifications and other local certifications. In your local store, you also will notice cocoa sustainability logos of chocolate companies who have in-house schemes, or some other claims that might be used to represent multiple programs.
Cocoa Horizons is another option available to Barry Callebaut customers worldwide. It is an independent Foundation focusing on creating impact with farmers, their communities, and the environment. The funds are targeted towards activities aiming to lift farmers out of poverty, to eradicate child labor and to achieve a deforestation free supply-chain. The Foundation is fully transparent on how the funds are spent and what impact is achieved.
