In December 2018, the Beyond Chocolate Partnership was launched and the Belgian chocolate sector embarked on a journey towards more sustainability. Over the past two years, partners in the initiative have increased investments in sustainable cocoa value chains, launched innovative sustainability projects and worked on a monitoring framework that helps them track progress and keep each other accountable.
During its General Assembly on September 30th, Beyond Chocolate will present how far the Belgian chocolate sector has come today. On the basis of the Beyond Chocolate 2020 reporting data, achievements will be celebrated and priorities for the following years will be identified. Moreover, participants will get to know the Beyond Chocolate co-financed sustainability projects better through short ‘chocolate intermezzo’s’.
The event is open to all partners of the Beyond Chocolate initiative, as well as other interested stakeholders.
