Sustainability during the complete production process is an essential part of our company policy. This regards raw materials, packaging and the complete energy chain in production and logistics.

Ecology is also economic.
For a middle-sized enterprise it is impossible to plead alone for sustainability in the cocoa sector. Together with other companies in the branch we see the chance to generate effects of synergy. This way we can contribute actively to the improvement of the life conditions of the people in the countries of origin.
Quality is provable. Certified without gaps.
