The Lindt & Sprüngli Promise

The “Lindt & Sprüngli Promise” is the company’s pledge that all products leaving its factories live up to our commitment to sustainable behaviour along the value chain.

Thanks to Lindt & Sprüngli’s thorough process control from sourcing of ingredients to production and distribution of its premium chocolates, the company is able to monitor and continuously improve sustainability in all aspects of its operations.

The “Lindt & Sprüngli Promise” describes the company’s commitments and policies related to sustainable action along the value chain, as outlined below.  Responsible behaviour, combined with the highest quality ingredients, state-of-the-art production equipment, proprietary production processes, quality control and LINDT’s Maîtres Chocolatiers’ secret recipes allow consumers to fully trust and wholeheartedly indulge in Lindt & Sprüngli’s premium quality chocolate products.

Sustainably Sourced

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.
