ZURICH, SWITZERLAND – Barry Callebaut announced that Carma Chocolate is its first brand to produce chocolate with 100% sustainable ingredients.
Carma goes beyond cocoa to seek out the most sustainable ingredients every step of the way. Every ingredient in Carma blankets – cocoa, dairy, sugar and vanilla – is sustainable. The brand seeks to balance sustainability with reliability and consistency in taste profile and color, which is an essential part of the unique chocolate making process in Switzerland, according to Barry Callebaut.
The challenges the chocolate supply chain faces every day include ending forced labor, tackling deforestation, environmental issues, helping farmers thrive, and ensuring that the ingredients used are fully sustainable and traceable. It also means that each ingredient in chocolate also faces its own sustainability challenges, and an ever-growing global population presents even more difficult barriers to sourcing these ingredients.
Carma, founded in 1931, has continued to contribute to the development of Swiss chocolate craftsmanship. It was the first Gourmet chocolate brand in Switzerland to certify cocoa with the UTZ program. Available in certain countries, Carma offers a wide range of exceptional blankets with carefully selected ingredients, available in six natural shades.
