The “health” criteria is one of our main concerns. Whether it is the health of those who taste our chocolates, the health of our employees or the health of the small producers who, thanks to organic cultivation, avoid contact with the chemicals.
All our products are certified under the Max Havelaar Fairtrade label. We are thankful to the countries in the South for their exceptional basic ingredients we are able to use. Therefore, we feel that fair trading is a duty.
Belvas always wants to go further in the “sustainable” approach. In 2009, we launched a new challenge: to become the first ecological chocolate factory. A new workshop was built in Ghislenghien, and all processes of the making were reviewed in that objective.
Mission accomplished ! In 2011, Belvas is recognized as the “greenest micro-enterprise in Europe” by the European Commission in Warsaw winning the EMAS award in this category.
In 2012, Belvas was nominated “Silver” trophy of Economy Network Manager Alliances in Nord-Pas de Calais region and won the Horizons award Hainaut (Sustainable Development award of the Province of Hainaut).
