¡Viva Perú! Ten employees of Chocolats Halba traveled in Peru for a week in May. There they took part in the cocoa plantation of our partner cooperative ACOPAGRO. They visited our afforestation project, got to know the challenges in cocoa cultivation and explored the Amazon rainforest. The reactions of the participants: "exciting, surprising, unforgettable".
Every year since 2011, Chocolats Halba sends a group of employees from all sectors to visit one of their partner cooperatives. So we intensify the partnership with the cooperatives, promote the cultural exchange and develop the know-how within the company. After the trip, the participants of the employee journey pass on their knowledge and impressions to their colleagues. The cooperative ACOPAGRO is located in the Peruvian catchment area of the Amazon. Chocolats Halba does not only source cocoa from ACOPAGRO - in cooperation with the cooperative, we also offset customers' CO2 emissions. The reforestation project is certified with the "Verified Carbon Standard (VCS)".
