About Callebaut Sustainability

As a Callebaut customer, how do I contribute to sustainability?
At Callebaut, we source 100% sustainable cocoa for our Finest Belgian Chocolate. With every pack you purchase, a portion goes towards funding the implementation of the productivity and community development activities of the Cocoa Horizons Foundation.

How is the Cocoa Horizons Premium used and verified.
The use of the Cocoa Horizons premium is fully transparent and verified by a third party yearly in the Cocoa Snapshot available on the Cocoa Horizons website. The premium breakdown in the period of fiscal year 2022/2023, is as follows: 43% as a cash premium for farmers and farmers groups, 28% is used to fund productivity activities, 10% for community development activities, 8% for zero deforestation and low carbon farming practices, and 10% for administrative activities.
