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, long-term supply of essential resources, Lindt & Sprüngli is committed to establishing the traceability of all its raw materials and building partnerships with its 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. Lindt & Sprüngli remains committed to taking all necessary steps to avoid the worst form of child labour from the cocoa production. The company has therefore taken further necessary steps and initiated third party verifications of its cocoa supply chain in 2012.
