Barry Callebaut now purchases 95% of its corrugated carton boxes as Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified in the EMEA region for the carton boxes used in its sites in Belgium, France, the Netherlands, UK, Sweden, Italy, Spain, Poland, Germany and Switzerland. 

The company’s sustainability strategy “Forever Chocolate” has a goal to ensure that all packaging comes from sustainable sources by 2025.

FSC certification ensures that products come from well-managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits. FSC certification is regarded internationally as a guarantee of responsible forest management.

In order to make sustainable chocolate the norm, Barry Callebaut has committed itself to have 100% sustainable ingredients in all of its products by 2025 and that includes packaging. Massimo Selmo, head of global sourcing at Barry Callebaut, explains: “Annually, we’re talking about 12 million square meters of packaging with FSC certification, the equivalent of 1,875 football fields. This amounts to 7,497 tons. FSC is a recognized standard internationally and part of our continuous efforts to ensure that our products, ingredients and packaging come from sustainable sources.”

Zurich-based Barry Callebaut Group has annual sales of about EUR 6.1bn.
The FSC sets standards for responsible forest management. A voluntary program, FSC uses the power of the marketplace to protect forests.
