Sustainable cocoa powders
As a member of the Barry Callebaut Group, many Bensdorp products can bear the Cocoa Horizons label, which refers to the non-profit foundation established by Barry Callebaut in 2015. Barry Callebaut’s sustainable HORIZONS cocoa and chocolate products are made with cocoa beans sourced from registered farmers participating in Cocoa Horizons activities. The Foundation works with participating farmers in Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana and Tanzania to improve the livelihoods of cocoa farmers and their communities through the promotion of sustainable, entrepreneurial farming, improved productivity, and community development. Core program activities focus on productivity by training farmers in good agricultural practices and supporting them with materials and innovative financing solutions, and working with rural communities to improve education opportunities, protect children, empower women, and provide safe water and basic health services.
