Sustainable raw materials are the foundation of our sustainable bakery products. They must comply to strict food quality specifications and meet all regulatory requirements. We have developed and refined our process for sourcing raw materials, and we are in close collaboration with our suppliers to further enhance our sustainability initiatives.
RSPO-certified segregated palm oil
In 2015, we began switching our production to RSPO-certified segregated palm oil or palm oil-free ingredients. Today, all our manufacturing sites using palm oil, and all the products we buy containing palm oil, conform to the RSPO-certification requirements.
By 2020 we use 100% UTZ-certified cocoa across our bakery portfolio. UTZ is a set of social and environmental criteria for responsible growing practices and efficient farm management.
We source grain according to specified criteria matching our baking processes. We know the origin of our grain. Our farmer owners proactively work to create more sustainable farming practises, and we actively follow that development.
