Beyers Cares

We believe in doing business responsibly

Cocoa is the essential ingredient in chocolate, so if there is no cocoa, there is no chocolate. It’s a fragile crop grown predominantly by smallholder farmers in countries around the equator. To meet chocolate demands, cocoa must be grown in a sustainable way.

Beyers Chocolates only works with companies that ensure a 100% sustainable cocoa supply chain. Our supply base invests in programmes that empower cocoa farmers by providing improved access to agricultural training and other support services. Additionally, the sustainability initiatives help to generate income for these farmers and their families, whilst also safeguarding the environment.

Beyers Chocolates and the Amarula Trust

When you indulge in the deliciousness of proudly South African Amarula chocolate, you’re not just treating yourself, but also contributing towards the conservation efforts of the not-for-profit Amarula Trust. With a portion of the price you pay going towards the Amarula Trust, you’re directly supporting their mission to safeguard the African elephant, ensuring that we can continue to encounter these majestic creatures under the Marula trees year after year. By implementing sustainable environmental and educational projects, the Amarula Trust plays a crucial role in preserving our precious heritage and protecting these magnificent animals for future generations to enjoy.

Beyers Chocolates and the JHB Culinary & Pastry School

Kees Beyers, the esteemed master chocolatier of Kees Beyers Chocolates, has combined his unparalleled expertise in working with fine chocolate with his deep-rooted passion for supporting small enterprises. This has led to a meaningful partnership with the JCPS, a culinary and confectionery school situated in the vibrant Maboneng district, just east of the Joburg CBD.

As part of this partnership, Beyers Chocolates proudly supplies the school with all of their chocolate ingredients, and has also generously sponsored a cold room and air-conditioning to enhance the learning environment. In addition, Beyers Chocolates has made valuable contributions towards structural changes at the school, further cementing their commitment to supporting this affordable culinary institution.
