We ensure fair working and living conditions when procuring raw materials and take mankind and the environment into careful consideration. We are committed to social standards and sustainability labels while striving for long-term partnerships with local producers and becoming involved in local projects.
We source a multitude of raw materials from numerous countries around the globe. Coffee beans from the rainy highlands of Honduras, cocoa beans from the Ivory Coast, or rice from Italy, India and Thailand – various provenances and complicated supply chains with a whole host of challenges but one thing in common: the farmers and factory workers are the primary and indispensable stakeholders and, at the same time, the weakest link in the supply chain. We want our raw materials to be grown, harvested and processed in fair working and living conditions that respect both people and nature. For this reason, we work in accordance with several sustainability and social standards.
Wherever possible, we are committed to local projects and strive for long-term partnerships. Our commitment promotes sustainable cultivation and processing of high-quality raw materials, contributes to improving the living conditions of local farmers and gives both them and their farms better prospects for the future.
