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.
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.
Lindt & Sprüngli premium products require high-quality materials, dedicated employees and respect for the environment. Lindt & Sprüngli is working continuously on reducing the use of valuable energy, water and paper. Special attention is paid to the constant reduction of greenhouse gas emissions through programs at production sites and by optimizing transport routes of ingredients and end products. To ensure that the company’s employees are guaranteed a safe working environment and are satisfied in their jobs, programs for health and safety, as well as regular employee surveys, build the basis for continuous improvement. Lindt & Sprüngli is engaged in many local initiatives and committed to responsible business conduct.
Lindt & Sprüngli has a responsibility towards our customers. Strict quality controls ensure that our products meet the highest standards - from the raw materials to the finished product. Only once the company is convinced that a finished product lives up to the high quality standards, it leaves the factory in impeccable condition. Lindt & Sprüngli will continue its efforts in research & development, packaging and logistics - in cooperation with its trade partners - to safeguard this treasured quality all the way to the homes of the customers. The company further applies highest standards to food safety, correct labeling, and customer information. All measures in place are continuously reviewed and improved and allow the customer to trustfully consume the products.
