THAT CARE FOR THE PLANET
Packaging that looks after the planet
Our new packaging is around the corner! In 2024, you'll be able to enjoy some of the new Van Houten and Caprimo recycle-ready packs. The new packs are made from polyolefin materials (PP / PE) that can be recycled in selected European countries, for example Germany, Austria and Belgium. If the waste streams are not yet developed, the material can be incinerated with energy recovery.
Responsible production sites
Have you heard of our Kågeröd factory in Sweden? This was our first factory to operate 100% on renewable energy, with the site's electricity coming from hydropower.
Operations for a greener future
In 2021, we reviewed our Chester (UK) operations site as we set ambitious sustainability goals. This year, the site registered an energy consumption decrease of 35,000 kwH per year, it's completely gas-use free, and successfully runs a full recycling process.
Forever Chocolate: our goals and initiatives
Barry Callebaut strives for more than sustainable ingredients. We want to make sustainability the norm. With this objective, Forever Chocolate was born — an ambitious plan that sets measurable goals and action steps to reshape the chocolate industry in the next years.
We're part of Cocoa Horizons
This means more than sustainable cocoa in our brands (Van Houten, Caprimo, Satro Quality Drinks). It means supporting the pillars that hold together this programme, established by Barry Callebaut: improving the livelihood and productivity of farmers, empowering their communities, and having a positive impact on the environment.
