Our unique Brands are Barry Callebaut, Callebaut, Cacao Barry & Van Leer. In 1996 the Belgian chocolate producer Callebaut and the French chocolate company Cacao Barry joined forces, creating a new company called Barry Callebaut. Both Cacao Barry and Callebaut were widely recognized in the food industry as reliable suppliers of high-quality products and as dependable business partners for thousands of wholesale and retail specialists in the chocolate industry. The merger combined Cacao Barry’s know-how in procurement and initial processing of cocoa beans with Callebaut’s extensive experience in producing and marketing chocolate products. Today, Barry Callebaut is the world market leader in high-quality cocoa and chocolate products and the only fully integrated chocolate company with a global presence. The company has evolved from a supplier of industry and specialty chocolates for industrial and artisanal customers into a provider of integrated solutions, from the bean to the finest finished product, to the entire food industry. As the outsourcing partner of choice, Barry Callebaut has an estimated 40% share of sales volumes in the open market. Barry Callebaut offers more than 2,000 recipes to its customers, allowing it to cater to local taste preferences around the world.
