Responsible Supply Chain

Our approach

When it comes to responsibility for our supply chain, we focus on the procurement of raw materials and production. To us, responsible procurement means: promoting transparency and traceability in order to identify and address specific problems for more sustainability. In our production we are working on reducing our CO2 footprint.

We use the following raw materials:

Wheat, sugar, eggs, cocoa, palm fat, milk products, nuts.

Sourcing of raw materials

What have we achieved so far?

  • Wheat: 80 percent from controlled contract farming.
  • Sugar: 100 percent from regional sources.
  • Palm fat: Palm oil and palm kernel oil 100 percent RSPO certified (level segregated).
  • Eggs: Eggs at least cage free.

Where do we go from here?

  • Wheat: 100 percent from controlled contract farming until 2023.
  • Cocoa: 100 percent sustainable cocoa sourcing by the end of 2020.
  • Palm fat: increasing the traceability of palm derivatives and fractions (RSPO level segregated) by the end of 2020.
  • Milk products and nuts: Identification of critical issues in our supply chain.

Responsible Production

What have we achieved so far?

  • We have planted 150.000 trees to compensate for our CO2 footprint.

  • In cooperation with Plant for the Planet, we have trained 1250 children as climate ambassadors.

  • Measuring our CO2-footprint at the production site in Skavina.

  • Use of solar energy at the production site in Barsinghausen since 2020.

Where do we go from here?

  •       German production sites: Measuring our CO2 footprint.
