The answer: cocoa commitment – With the cocoa commitment sustainability program, we are dedicated to developing and implementing solutions to the challenges of sustainability in cocoa farming.
Cocoa commitment looks at the entire cocoa value chain—from the living conditions of the farmers to environmentally friendly cultivation to the end product. The entire journey is vertically integrated and completely traceable—from the farms to the cocoa-processing factory in Germany, where cocoa powder, cocoa butter, and cocoa mass are made from the cocoa beans (mass balance system). These and other ingredients are then used to make our delicious chocolate products. The program builds on the established Rainforest Alliance standard and supplements this with additional measures.
