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.

Lindt Sustainability Actions

Recyclable Packaging

We are trying to strike a balance between visually appealing packaging and quality aspects associated with product protection. We always try to reduce packaging sizes and use recyclable materials wherever possible.

RSPO-Certified Palm Oil

We understand the impact that the uncontrolled cultivation of palm oil can have on rainforests and biodiversity. That is why we are constantly monitoring its use in our products and are committed to only purchasing sustainable RSPO certified palm oil.

Sustainably Sourced Hazelnuts

Whole unprocessed hazelnuts are a key ingredient in a lot of our chocolate products. We source the majority of them from the Black Sea region of Turkey. Learn how we are working to ensure that all our hazelnuts from Turkey are sourced through our sustainability program.
