Barry Callebaut Group released new sustainability targets. The chocolate manufacturer’s new “Forever Chocolate” targets build on its 2025 goals and adds additional targets for 2030.
Originally launched in 2016, the group’s “Forever Chocolate” aimed to make its practices more sustainable by 2025 through measurable targets.
“Our Forever Chocolate targets are dynamic by design. The requirements of a sustainable cocoa and chocolate supply chain are constantly evolving and transforming. Plus, since the start of Forever Chocolate, we continuously generated new insights through data analysis and engagement with experts,” said Steven Retzlaff, president of global coca for Barry Callebaut. “We therefore wanted to add fresh ambition to our Forever Chocolate plan with more focus on impact on the ground beyond compliance, on supporting and empowering beyond training, and on a systemic approach beyond individual intervention. This is why we have sharpened our existing Forever Chocolate targets and added additional targets extending our impact beyond 2025.”
