From Bean to Bar

Lindt & Sprüngli is one of the few chocolate manufacturers producing from bean to bar – from the selection of fine cocoa varieties, sourcing of cocoa beans, and production of cocoa mass to the finished product.

The Lindt & Sprüngli Farming Program

High-quality cocoa beans are the heart of our chocolates. That's why we developed our own sustainability program for cocoa beans. The cocoa beans in Lindt & Sprüngli's chocolates come from the Farming Program. The goal of the Program is to create decent and resilient livelihoods for today’s and future cocoa farmers and their families, and sustainable intensification of agriculture. We aim to achieve this by facilitating higher productivity of farms, diversified household incomes, preservation of biodiversity and natural ecosystems, reduced risk of child labor, and improved infrastructure in communities.
