Beyond Chocolate: a liveable income for small cocoa farmers
5 December 2018
Colruyt Group has set up a sustainable supply chain in 2020 in order to provide cocoa farmers in Ivory Coast with a liveable income. In doing this, we have taken a concrete step towards the realisation of the sector agreement 'Beyond Chocolate', that aims to sustainably improve the living conditions of the cacao producers by 2030. We have been making efforts for years to make our chocolate and cacao products more sustainable. For example, we only use certified sustainable cacao in nearly all of our private label chocolate and cacao products, which is the target for all Belgian retailers by 2025.
With this initiative, we contribute to the following Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
