€70,062 for the training of 300 cocoa farmers

The Collibri Foundation Chocolate Action raised €70,062 and will support the training of 300 young cocoa farmers in Nicaragua.

Huge numbers of you flocked to buy chocolate during the Collibri Foundation’s Chocolate Action. An amount of €35,031, which the Colruyt Group is doubling to €70,062, was collected. We would like to thank everyone who took part in this successful action!

A resounding success

Between 24 February and 9 March, Colruyt, Bio-Planet, Collect&Go and OKay customers and staff from the Colruyt Group were offered to buy a tablet of milk or dark chocolate to support the training of young cocoa farmers in Nicaragua. The slogan ‘Take a bite of our fair and delicious chocolate’ was clearly appreciated as the campaign raised no less than €35,031. And that is not all, as Colruyt Group is doubling this amount to €70,062.

Supporting young cocoa farmers

The money raised in this campaign will go entirely to the training project that the Collibri Foundation is supporting in Nicaragua. Through hands-on training, young cocoa farmers learn everything about cocoa cultivation so that they can later build up their own business. Young people like Maria, Freddy and Lázaro can continue to grow personally and professionally with their knowledge of cocoa cultivation. Their certified cocoa then finds a market at Colruyt Group.
