At Bellagroup we base our work on the concept of Responsible Hospitality. This means that we, in addition to delivering the best possible service for our guests and customers, also take responsibility for the impact that our business has on society and the environment and strive to affect our surroundings positively.
We strive to be the leading hospitality company in Denmark by hosting moments that matter. This is our purpose and it encompasses our approach to everything that we do. We make the most of our potential to create positive impacts – for us, for our guests and for the community around us.
Due to this, we have defined sustainable focus areas and initiated concrete initiatives within each area.

SOME OF OUR INITIATIVES
SUSTAINABLE LUXURY CHOCOLATE
It is great to buy and eat chocolate of amazing quality - but the price is on average 2.5 times the price of regular chocolate. However by buying sustainable and tasty chocolate from Original Beans, we actually support many different sustainable projects around the world.
Who and what is Original Beans?
The company has existed since 2008, and works to conserve rain forests and old, rare varieties of cocoa through the production of luxurious chocolate alongside local farmers across the globe.
Original beans supports the conservation of rare varieties of cocoa, preservation of endangered species, improvement of farmers’ living conditions, and the establishment one of the world’s first climate positive supply chains. The cultivation of forest-chocolate is a sustainable and green alternative to much more destructive farming practices such as the production of palm oil.
Bellagroup has chosen 5 types of chocolate
Virunga (Congo), Piura Porcelana (Peru), Esmeraldas (Ecuador), Femmes de Virunga (Congo) and Edel Weiss (The Dominican Republic). All of which are sold to some of the world’s best restaurants.
Behind each chocolate lies a different development project. Read more about Original Beans here: www.originalbeans.com
