High-quality cocoa beans are the heart of our chocolate
We, at Lindt & Sprüngli, take responsibility for every stage: from the selection of the cocoa beans to the production of the finished chocolate products. This means we produce chocolate from 'bean to bar'. We understand that we can only make a true, meaningful, impact on local conditions if we know exactly where our cocoa beans come from, who grew them and how they were produced. That is why we developed our very own sustainable sourcing model for cocoa beans – the Lindt & Sprüngli Farming Program.
We pride ourselves on using cocoa beans from our Farming Program in our chocolates. Since 2020, 100% of our cocoa beans are sourced traceable and externally verified by an independent third party. This is a major step toward our target to source all cocoa products (beans, butter, powder) through sustainability programs by 2025.
