Barry Callebaut has announced a collaboration with SAP to use its enterprise software SAP to help enable sustainable cocoa farming.  A new innovative cloud-based tool will also be launched for cocoa bean traceability and better sustainability data management.

Developed by SAP, this new solution combines desktop and mobile access with digitally recorded information on farmers, their farms and their communities. These records include farmer registration, cocoa buying, processing and transportation. The app will also enable the tracking of cocoa beans from the farmer to Barry Callebaut’s warehouse. The system went live on June 13 and currently covers about 65,000 participating cocoa farmers in Côte d'Ivoire.
