Mid-year report 2020/21
Our drive to support cocoa farmers
Discover the newly released Cocoa Horizons mid-year report to view impact and progress across our three focus areas: Productivity, Community and Environment. In the report, you’ll find examples of activities such as farmer graduation, farm services, income diversification, efforts towards eradicating child labor, cookstoves and seedlings distribution.
This program is really helpful. With yield estimation techniques guided by the field facilitator, I understand how to forecast my income so I can develop a plan to improve my farm’s productivity.

Expanding the program to create more impact
The Cocoa Horizons program keeps growing and increasing its impact for farmers and their communities by:
- Reaching more farmers: +14% farmer groups delivered Horizons cocoa versus prior year. This represents 107,827 registered farmers.
- Extending to new countries: after Ecuador last year, the program is now being introduced in Nigeria.
- Involving new partners beyond Barry Callebaut to implement the program.
Offering segregated and traceable cocoa to answer consumer needs for more transparency
Barry Callebaut is now offering a segregated and traceable sustainable cocoa mass under the Cocoa Horizons Program. This option enables you to trace back the heart of your chocolate directly to select farming communities. By increasing transparency, you will be able to leverage your sustainability impact and drive your brand’s purpose.
