In our countries of origin, cocoa production faces deep-rooted challenges. Small farms, old and diseased cocoa trees, as well as limited agricultural practices, can result in low yields and not enough income for farmers and their families. Poor infrastructure and a lack of access to farming equipment make production even more difficult. Finally, environmental challenges such as climate change and deforestation are crucial issues. It is our priority to tackle these obstacles and take responsibility for sustainable cocoa cultivation. That's why we developed our own sustainable sourcing model for cocoa beans - the Lindt & Sprüngli Farming Program.
