The Cocoa Horizons Foundation


The Cocoa Horizons Foundation was created by Barry Callebaut to help shape a sustainable future for cocoa and chocolate.

Its mission: to improve the livelihoods of cocoa farmers and their communities through the promotion of sustainable, entrepreneurial farming, improved productivity, and community development.

The Cocoa Horizons Foundation serves as a new platform for chocolate companies and other contributors to invest in sustainable cocoa. It is funded via three main sources:
  1. the purchase of Barry Callebaut’s sustainable HORIZONS cocoa and chocolate products (which are succeeding QPP products);
  2. contributions from donors and customers who are inspired to support the mission of the Foundation; and
  3. Barry Callebaut’s contributions as part of its CHF 40 million Cocoa Horizons sustainability initiative launched in 2012. 

Through pooling resources and funds and putting them to the most effective use while helping drive demand for sustainably sourced cocoa, the Foundation aims to scale impact and drive positive change in cocoa communities
