Cocoa

Our quality promise to consumers drives us to specify strict quality standards in how we source and process our cocoa. This has a direct impact on the sustainability of the cocoa supply chain.

Our approach
We are committed to actively contributing to a sustainable and responsible cocoa supply chain by working with all relevant stakeholders. Our objective is to make producing cocoa profitable and attractive for farmers while protecting the rights of children and safeguarding the environment that cocoa farmers depend on for their income.

Hazelnuts

We aim to be a driving force behind a hazelnut industry where hazelnut production creates value for all.

Our approach
Our ambition is to be a driving force behind an evolving hazelnut industry where farmers and farming communities are thriving, workers’ and children’s rights are unequivocally respected and environmental values are enhanced through regenerative agriculture practices.

Palm oil

We are committed to playing a leading role in the sustainable transformation of the palm oil sector to benefit the environment and people living and working in palm oil communities.

Our approach
We are dedicated to leading the way in industry transformation, working with our suppliers and partners to ensure a palm oil supply chain that is reliable, safe and ready to innovate and improve. We are committed to securing a “no deforestation, no development on peatlands and no exploitation”* palm oil supply chain through collaboration with ngos, stakeholders and suppliers.
* ndpe policies include commitments to the following: free, prior and informed consent (fpic) for indigenous and other local communities, zero burning, preventing poor working conditions, and preserving high conservation value (hcv) areas, high carbon stock (hcs) areas and peatlands.

Milk and eggs

Animal welfare is a central of our ethical sourcing initiatives. One of our main objectives is to ensure the progressive improvement of animal welfare standards within the supply chains of animal origin products.
