18 Oct 2017 --- Forever Chocolate has been shortlisted in the category Sustainable Business Communication of the Year of the Responsible Business Awards, which, in turn, is great recognition for Barry Callebaut’s Forever Chocolate strategy. 

Barry Callebaut's sustainability strategy “Forever Chocolate” holds the ambition to move sustainable chocolate from niche to norm in less than a decade and by 2025 address the biggest sustainability challenges in the chocolate supply chain:

 

• Eradicate child labor from its supply chain

• Lift more than 500,000 cocoa farmers out of poverty

• Become carbon and forest positive

• Have 100 percent sustainable ingredients in all its products

 

The Responsible Business Awards are awarded annually by a judging panel featuring executives from some of the world’s leading companies, NGO, media and academic institutions, brought together by the business intelligence company Ethical Corporation.

 

Barry Callebaut was competing with some of the leading consumer companies and congratulates Heineken for winning the award for best Sustainable Communications of the Year.

 

“Everyone at Barry Callebaut can be very proud of this shortlisting/award. It shows our messaging is robust and impactful, and successfully inspires industry and beyond. This is essential for our efforts to create a movement to make sustainable chocolate the norm by 2025,” says the company.
