Impact, special achievements & commitmentsEN/FR

Valter Bovetti is always looking for quality to offer the very best, using only the finest ingredients and continuing the tradition of old-fashioned chocolate.
The commitment is also respect for men and cocoa producers. As a true field man, he goes to the producing countries to discuss the product quality but also the working and living conditions of the farmers. He exchanges with them and tries to better understand the impact of fair trade on these small owners. At home, Bovetti do not cheat with cocoa, the planet and consumers. Nature is fragile, if one wants to enjoy its benefits, everybody should take care ...

In 2006 and 2013, Valter Bovetti sponsored two plantations in Sao Tome, the chocolate island. In 2014 and 2016, he visited his suppliers in Santo Domingo and Mexico in order to know the reality of the field and to verify where Fair trade income went into.

Valter Bovetti n’a de cesse de rechercher la qualité pour offrir ce qui se fait de mieux, en utilisant uniquement des ingrédients de premier choix et en perpétuant la tradition du chocolat à l’ancienne.
L’engagement pour lui, c’est aussi le respect des hommes, des producteurs de cacao. En véritable homme de terrain, il se rend dans les pays producteurs pour échanger sur les produits mais aussi sur les conditions de travail et de vie des cultivateurs. Il échange avec eux et tente de mieux cerner l’impact du commerce équitable sur ces petits propriétaires. Bovetti ne triche pas avec le cacao, la planète et les consommateurs. La nature est fragile, si chacun souhaite profiter de ses bienfaits, tout le monde devrait en prendre soin…

En 2006 et 2013, Valter Bovetti a ainsi parrainé deux plantations à Sao Tomé, l’île chocolat. En 2014 et en 2016, il s'est rendu chez ses fournisseurs à Saint-Domingue et au Mexique afin de connaître la réalité du terrain et de vérifier la destination des revenus issus du commerce équitable.
