Zertifizierter Kakao

100% SUSTAINABLE CERTIFIED COCOA

Cocoa is the raw material around which our daily work revolves. Therefore, it is very important to us to respect its value and to support the people who grow and harvest it. Since 2014, we have completely converted our production to 100% sustainable certified cocoa. We only use cocoa that is certified organic, Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance or UTZ.
