We care about the community and we are proud to support local community projects and causes through product sponsorship and charity support. One such initiative is “Butlers Cup 4” – where the proceeds of all hot drinks sold on a particular day in Butlers Chocolate Cafés have been donated to a national charity. This program has been proven to be a major success and one in which our customers have been delighted to participate in, raising over €30,000 in 2016 for the Capuchin Centre for Homeless people and local homelessness initiatives in Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway. Previous recipients of the Butlers Cup 4 were The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul and Focus Ireland.
We are also delighted to have a great partnership with the HOPE Foundation with whom we have worked for a number of years. The Hope Foundation is an Irish charity that is working to improve the lives of the street children of Kolkata. By providing housing, day-care & education the charity aims to give hope to children who would otherwise have nothing. Since 2004, Butlers Chocolates have produced a special HOPE chocolate bar for the HOPE Foundation, which is sold in schools and businesses around Ireland for €2.00. The Hope Foundation works to free street children and poor families from lives of pain, abuse and poverty. In 2011, the HOPE Foundation launched a major fundraising initiative entitled “A Day of HOPE”, which takes place every Autumn.
Butlers Chocolates is a family-owned business making and selling chocolates and hot beverages based in Dublin since 1932 and operating over 20 Butlers Chocolate Cafés.
An Irish company, employing over 400 people holding many diverse views, Butlers Chocolates respects everyone's right to have and express their own opinions, and does not, as a company, take any particular political or religious stance on any issue, financial or otherwise.
Butlers Chocolates contributes to a number of Irish and international charities, including programmes for improving the lives of cocoa farming families in The Ivory Coast, on an ongoing basis.
