Sustainalytics a leading company assessing confectionery’s efforts to manage the environmental, social and governance management risks in supply chains, has ranked Barry Callebaut #3 out of 203 companies in the packaged food industry.

Barry Callebaut has been recognised as an industry leader in the management of the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) risks for the third consecutive year, and says: “Our position in the top three once again confirms that we are consistently leading, not only in the chocolate and cocoa sector, but also in comparison to our peers in the broader food industry​.”

The cocoa ingredients supplier said it is dedicated to running all its operations with transparency and integrity, which includes reporting on the group’s ESG management and risks.

We always seek to understand issues of concern and respond accordingly, and we do not shy away from reporting on the challenges in our supply chain in order to make sustainable chocolate the norm by 2025, such as ending deforestation and eradicating child labour in our supply chain​,” it said in a statement.
