Lindt & Sprüngli becomes TFT cocoa member
What we do
How we work with Lindt and Sprungli on cocoa
Our work with Lindt and Sprungli involves collaboration in their entire cocoa supply chain where they have established the Farming Program (at different stages) across Ecuador, Ghana and Madagascar. The Farming Program aims to ensure that agricultural, social, environmental, and business practices are followed and continually improved upon at the farm level in the company’s cocoa supply chain, and that these improved practices have an impact on sustainable agricultural development, particularly the livelihoods of farmers and their families.
