In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...
Barry Callebaut's joint venture partner Biopartenaire now Rainforest Alliance Certified(TM)

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND -- (Marketwire) -- 12/06/12 -- Barry Callebaut / Barry Callebaut's joint venture partner Biopartenaire now Rainforest Alliance Certified™ . Processed and transmitted by Thomson Reuters ONE. The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.

Working with farmers in Côte d'Ivoire to improve cocoa production

* In partnership with Barry Callebaut, Biopartenaire's local presence in rural villages offers independent farmers improved market access

* Biopartenaire now holds dual certification; company achieved sustainability standards of UTZ Certified in 2011

* Biopartenaire replicates in Côte d'Ivoire its farmer-centric, village-to-port business model started in Tanzania

Barry Callebaut, the world's leading manufacturer of high-quality cocoa and chocolate products, announced that its joint venture partner Biopartenaire, a specialized village-to-port cocoa bean supplier based in Yamoussoukro, Côte d'Ivoire, is now Rainforest Alliance Certified™. Biopartenaire was designated UTZ Certified in 2011.

Established in 2010, Biopartenaire works with cocoa farmers in 292 villages to produce good quality, well-fermented and well-dried cocoa. Together with Barry Callebaut's sustainability experts, the company offers farmer trainings in good agricultural practices and proper post-harvest management techniques in accordance with leading certification standards. Biopartenaire's village-to-port proprietary sourcing model ensures a high degree of transparency and supply chain security.

"Biopartenaire works with smallholder farmers on the basis of mutual respect and trust. These guiding principles served us in good stead as we built our business in the challenging months after the post-election crisis in Côte d'Ivoire," said Eric Smeets, founder of Biopartenaire. "Achieving recognition first as UTZ Certified and now as Rainforest Alliance Certified in about two years is a testament to the perseverance and hard work of our staff and all our participating farmers, and underscores our commitment to smallholders and sustainable cocoa."

Barry Callebaut buys most of the cocoa produced by the farmers who have registered to work with Biopartenaire.

"We believe Biopartenaire's business model is an effective way to reach thousands of cocoa farmers who are not associated with a farmer group or cooperative and who, as independent smallholders, don't experience the benefits such organizations can offer in terms of training, services and market access," said Nicholas Camu, Group Manager Cocoa Horizons at Barry Callebaut. "Through our joint venture with Biopartenaire, we aim to leverage its farmer-centric approach to reach more farming communities and advance sustainable cocoa production in Côte d'Ivoire."

Biopartenaire, a subsidiary of the Biolands Group, is based on the successful farmer-centric business model designed by the founders of Biolands in Tanzania. Biolands, Africa's largest exporter of certified organic cocoa, is a long-time supplier of top-quality cocoa to Barry Callebaut. In addition to meeting the standards of organic certification, Biolands is Fair for Life, Rainforest Alliance and UTZ certified. Barry Callebaut owns 49% of the Biolands Group.

The Rainforest Alliance certification standard includes economic, social and environmental criteria, with an emphasis on environmental issues, including protection of natural resources and the management of chemical inputs.
