CHICAGO, Dec. 13 /CSRwire/ - Carolin Fesenberg joined Blommer Chocolate in the role of Sustainability Program Manager, effective November 1st 2012. She will report to Kip Walk as the Sustainability Director. Carolin will work out of East Greenville for the first year learning about our capabilities, products and customer base. Thereafter, it is envisaged she will operate out of Europe to facilitate her frequent trips to origin where she will develop, manage and oversee Blommer’s cocoa sustainability and traceability programs.
Prior to joining Blommer, Carolin worked at Swisscontact, as a Project Manager/Project Advisor directly in the field in Indonesia. (Swisscontact is a private sector organization that addresses poverty alleviation by applying the principle of “Helping Others to Help Themselves”). From her work with Swisscontact she believes that a holistic approach is required for a successful value chain. While it needs to be cost-effective and commercially viable if it is to survive, it must also deal with the broad issues that farmers and their families face rather than the narrow objective of simple financial return.
As Sustainability Program Manager, Carolin will help implement and refine Blommer’s existing global initiatives while increasing the firm’s degree of direct and practical involvement in improving the livelihood of cocoa farmers that supply us. She hopes to work closely with customers in achieving this aim.
Carolin graduated from the University of Applied Science in Konstanz, Germany with a Masters in International Business and Communication, specializing in SE Asia. A native German speaker, she is fluent in English and Bahasa while also communicating in French and Spanish.
