Support for the integration of people with disabilities, in Hedona’s case, has resulted in a tangible social impact, and the initiative is achievable in other European countries. Therefore, this project was awarded by the Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB). A total of 84 projects were submitted to the competition, among which Hedona Chocolate, as a social enterprise and integrative workshop, based on the evaluation of the criteria of impact, sustainability and innovation, won an award of 25,000 euros.
Hedona recognized the market need for high quality craft products and innovative products for the benefit of health, and thus positioned itself in a competitive market. Chocolate workers, with extreme care and dedication, approach this creative work that requires precision, great will and love. This award of the Council of Europe Development Bank is a confirmation of our work and a wind in the back for the realization of our vision.
