What is Bulckies World?
At Chocolaterie Vandenbulcke it’s important to let our customers enjoy tasty chocolates. But even more important, is to do this sustainably, with care for the world around our chocolate. With Bulckies World we want to set a good example with initiatives that benefit product, environment, people and society.
Tasty, sustainable and responsible chocolate. That’s what we do it for! The program educates farmers, pays them a fair price and gives them a bonus per kilo of chocolate sold. The knowledge they gain from the education, results in a larger cocao harvest with a higher quality. In addition, our fermentation specialists follow strict rules to obtain high-quality chocolate, which again generates more income for the farmers.
There is no planet B, but there is Bulckies World that helps us keep our ecological footprint as small as possible. On the one hand, by striving for 100% recyclable and ecological packaging. For example, all our cardboard is FSC labeled. We also limit our waste and production surpluses to an absolute minimum. On the other hand, we limit the impact of our company on the climate, for example by using solar energy and planting trees around the cocoa plantations.
Chocolate is close to our heart and so are all the people involved, from bean to praline. That is why we are committed to a better life for the farmers in Africa, workable work for people with a disability, an honest job for our own colleagues and of course, satisfied customers and stakeholders. We do this by continuously investing, learning and innovating, every day.
Our company is part of a society to which we want to actively contribute. Every year we strive to donate 1% of our profit to various projects and charities that add to a better world.
