The Barry Callebaut Group serves the entire food industry, from industrial food manufacturers to artisanal and professional users of chocolate, such as chocolatiers, pastry chefs, bakers, hotels, restaurants or caterers. The two global brands catering to the specific needs of these Gourmet customers are Callebaut® and Cacao Barry®.
The Barry Callebaut Group is committed to make sustainable chocolate the norm by 2025 to help ensure future supplies of cocoa and improve farmer livelihoods. It supports the Cocoa Horizons Foundation in its goal to shape a sustainable cocoa and chocolate future.
“Barry Callebaut works every day making sure that cocoa farmers children go to school and have a good development, but there are some things that we cannot do on our own and have chosen to do with the Jacobs Foundation, the World Cocoa Foundation and other stakeholders. The programs from the Jacobs foundation will provide the vehicle by which cocoa farming communities will benefit from good education and better development and we will all have less child labour to account for.”Pablo Perversi – Chief Innovation, Sustainability and Quality Officer and Global Head of Gourmet, Barry Callebaut
