Forever Chocolate – Making sustainable chocolate the norm

Forever Chocolate

We all love chocolate and we want it to be around forever. But to do that, sustainable chocolate must become the norm. That is why we’re committed to finding bold new ways of doing business and bringing partners together to make it happen.

Click here to understand why we need to act.

In 2016 Barry Callebaut launched Forever Chocolate, our bold plan to make sustainable chocolate the norm by 2025. With four time-bound, public and ambitious commitments, we have committed to lift more than 500,000 cocoa farmers out of poverty, eradicate child labor from our supply chain, be carbon and forest positive, and to have 100% sustainable ingredients in all of our products.

2021 is a special year for Barry Callebaut, this year marks the 25-year anniversary of the company and it also means that we are halfway through our plan to make sustainable chocolate the norm by 2025. 

Looking at the progress we made since 2016, we are very proud of our achievements so far. In the first five years of Forever Chocolate, we have reduced our carbon intensity per tonne of product by more than –17%, lifted 214,584 cocoa farmers (+50%) in our supply chain out of extreme poverty – on a trajectory towards a living income – and reached 43% of the cocoa and chocolate products sold containing sustainably sourced cocoa. In addition, through the scaling of our traceability and sourcing efforts, we reduced the Land Use Change (LUC) impact from cocoa cultivation by over –10%. While there is still work to be done, these results signify tangible impact on the ground.
