Treat Tomorrow starts with a Glocal Customer Gathering on April 28, 2021.
Antoine de Saint-Affrique, CEO of the Barry Callebaut Group, said: “The COVID-19 crisis disrupted the whole world and accelerated changes already in the making. By initiating Treat Tomorrow, we aim to shift the dialogue with customers, brands and artisans with regards to consumer attitude changes.”
The Treat Tomorrow initiative is supported by a platform to provide knowledge and insights to elicit positive change. On April 28, Treat Tomorrow will be kicked-off with the live-streaming of 5 mini-series addressing 5 pressing consumer questions.
