Nutrition key issues

Consumers purchase chocolate according to their individual desires and needs. Decisional elements for choosing the product could be for example the percentage of cocoa or the ingredients list specifying also allergens. Transparent customer communication and product labeling are therefore very important to Lindt & Sprüngli.

Labeling-Shopping Experience-Lindt & Sprüngli

Lindt & Sprüngli is aware of its responsibility to inform consumers about even small concentrations of potential allergens such as hazelnuts or almonds via the list of ingredients or the allergen details we provide. Lindt & Sprüngli includes a clear warning on all products to inform its consumers about traces of certain Allergens they may contain. We also follow strict process requirements in order to avoid unwelcome contamination of our products.

A balanced diet is crucial for consumer health. We recommend eating small respectively reasonable amounts of chocolate as a treat. Nutritional values are displayed on the packaging of all Lindt & Sprüngli products in accordance to national and international legislation. We promote transparency with online information regarding contents and nutritional values.
