briefing

An educational journey into remote cocoa areas

Barry Callebaut, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-quality cocoa and chocolate products, unveiled a unique addition to its Cocoa Horizons sustainability initiative – the Cocoa Horizons Truck: a multi-purpose mobile unit powered by solar energy, which provides space for farmer training sessions in good agricultural practices, basic health care services, literacy training and child labor sensitization programs.

The Cocoa Horizons Truck is equipped with modern communication material powered by solar energy. It acts as a stage where Barry Callebaut’s own training experts animate these trainings in addition to evening entertainment. Where needed, a nurse is also on board to provide basic health care, such as medical consultations and common medicines. More than 33,000 people have already benefited from such a medical visit.
