Chocolate Bonus distribution 2017

There are a number of different “sustainability” programmes in the world of chocolate but only one that both creates and shares value through flavour improvements and a Chocolate Bonus Policy.

The Chocolate Bonus is part our Cacao-Trace programme. It’s an unique initiative that shares wealth between chocolate lovers and cocoa farmers and helps ensuring cocoa farming remains an attractive business in the future.

For every kilo of chocolate purchased, we return €0,10 directly back to the cocoa farmers we work with.

Last year we've reallocated a total bonus of €177.638 to our Cacao-Trace farmers in Vietnam and the Philippines. The Chocolate Bonus in Ivory Coast will start in 2018 with the sales of Belcolade Selection Cacao-Trace
