by Hanspeter Huber
The US environmental organisation Mighty Earth today published its "buyer's guide for sustainable chocolate". Chocolate companies were evaluated according to their commitment to sustainability. Chocolats Halba achieved five times the full score ("leading the industry"), taking first place. The chocolate of the company from Pratteln near Basel is thus considered to be the most sustainable in the industry.
Petra Heid, Head of Sustainability at Chocolats Halba: "We are very happy about the good results. For us, it is a confirmation of our comprehensive commitment and our position as a sustainability pioneer in the Swiss chocolate industry". Last year Chocolats Halba already received the Swiss Ethics Award "for outstanding ethical achievements".
