Barry Callebaut Food Manufacturers Europe

Barry Callebaut offers cocoa and chocolate products, ready-to-use fillings and decorations, coatings and cocoa powders as well as customized services to the entire food manufacturing industry. For companies that choose to outsource their chocolate production to improve efficiency and reduce costs, Barry Callebaut makes an ideal global partner.

Barry Callebaut is the world's leading producer of high-quality cocoa, chocolate and chocolate-related products as well as fillings and decorations to the food manufacturing industry. We have production sites all around the world and thousands of employees dedicated to providing our customers with nothing but the finest products and solutions. In our more than 155-year history, we have built up unrivalled experience in every area of chocolate making, from processing the best cocoa beans to creating and producing top quality finished chocolate and chocolate-based products. But there's more to our company than just products. We strive to establish close working partnerships with our customers, so that together we can create products which exceed consumer expectations.

The expertise we have built up means that rather than just understanding the trends in our customers markets, we often anticipate them: Research & Development has always been one of our strengths, and we have introduced many innovative products in a wide variety of markets. This is where our partnership approach really pays off. We don't simply help our customers by supplying their chosen ingredients, we can also offer support and advice about taste formulations, production processes and the many other aspects required for successful product development. And it all happens on the basis of our core values: customer focus, passion, entrepreneurship, team spirit and integrity.

As the global leader in cocoa and chocolate innovations and provider of a comprehensive range of services in the fields of product development, processing, training and marketing, our company is actively engaged in initiatives and projects that contribute to a more sustainable supply chain. To this extend we will provide our customers with palm oil and its derivatives sourced from crops that are sustainably grown and certified.

ACOP Report Submissions

Organisation's Commitments Toward Sustainability

  • How will your organisation promote the RSPO internally and to other stakeholders?
    Promotion will be done via our website for our external customers and internally, via BC Net, for our own collaborators. In addition a customer specific mailing will be sent to all our customers, making them aware that BC is able to offer them sustainable palm applications, to start with mass balance and when volumes evolve, traceable volume as well. Our product managers in the different areas of the world will be made aware and stimulated to offer our customers this new possibility.
  • Where relevant, what processes is the organisation establishing to engage with interested parties, for example to resolve conflict or to use sustainably produced palm oil?
    There is a growing customer interest for sustainable palm. Being member of RSPO and having the plants using palm certified, will enable us to offer customers formulas that contain RSPO palm. In view of the low values at the start, only in mass balance but as soon as demand is increasing,, also as traceable palm.
  • Where relevant, how will your organisation work towards implementing the RSPO Principles and Criteria or assessing supplier performance against these criteria?
    According to us, this is irrelevant since our customers drive the demand and what they want to put in their formulas. By offering formulas containing RSPO, palm we can actively promote RSPO.
  • Any other information that would support the application such as what your organisation hopes to gain from joining RSPO and how it would support RSPO?
    By joining RSPO we continue to do what customers expect us to do: provide tailor made solutions and helping them to offer their customers products with ingredients from a proven sustainable supply chain.
