Our Premium Promise in Sourcing

Lindt & Sprüngli is convinced that the traceability of raw materials back to their regions of origin and even to individual producing societies is a pre-condition for sustainable sourcing. Knowing the regions and farmers where the selected ingredients originate enables the company to control quality at source and to ensure respect for the environment and for fair labour conditions in the supply chain.

To guarantee the sustainable and long-term supply of essential resources, Lindt & Sprüngli is committed to establishing traceability of raw materials and building partnerships with suppliers. The social and environmental aspects of its sourcing operations are taken into account and contributions are made to improve education and infrastructure in farming communities. This approach allows Lindt & Sprüngli to know the farmers delivering our raw materials and to verify their social and environmental practices. The company also tries to limit the involvement of intermediaries, thereby allowing producers to receive fair payment for their quality products.
