Responsibility in the area of sustainability is especially important when it comes to raw materials that are obtained from distant countries, such as cocoa. In large part, cocoa is grown on small farms in West Africa by farmers who have little access to modern agricultural knowledge and are dependent on local wholesale cocoa buyers who don’t always pay fair prices. As a result, these farmers often can’t make a good living from cultivating cocoa. This can lead to the clearing of rainforests for new cropland, the use of large amounts of fertilizers and pesticides, abusive child labor practices, and poor living conditions for women. We are dedicated to putting an end to these circumstances—including through knowledge transfer and better prices—so that farmers and their families can live well from growing cocoa.
Cocoa, in the form of chocolate, is an important ingredient of Edle Tropfen in Nuss. In sourcing our cocoa, as well as all the other raw materials we use, we pay special attention to excellent quality and social responsibility.
