  1. Förderpolitik

    The Lindt Cocoa Foundation supplements the already existing endeavors of the Lindt & Sprüngli Group designed to improve the living and working conditions of farmers in the countries of origin of the raw materials. Its projects ensure that raw material procurement is done in a way which works more effectively towards sustainable agricultural development.

    The mission is to foster sustainable agriculture in developing and emerging regions through the support of innovative projects that aim at enabling farmers to improve their practices in the cultivation, production and processing of raw materials used in chocolate.

    In order to reach the mission, the foundation focuses on the following areas:

    • Support projects that aim at creating the motivation, capabilities and capacity of farmers to improve their farming practices
    • Support projects that aim at fostering an enabling environment and removing constraints farmers face to improve their practices
    • Support research projects that aim at increasing the understanding about the farmers and their environment in order to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of projects
