Nachhaltigkeit Icon Sustainability


Responsibility towards people and nature is an important benchmark for our daily work. We try to approach all people involved in the value chain with respect and to protect our environment.

On the following pages, we present our values and activities, which we have firmly anchored in our sustainability strategy and in the four areas of action: supply chain, team, resources and environment.

100% sustainable certfied cocoa

Cocoa is the raw material around which our daily work revolves. Therefore it is very important for us to support social and ecosystem-friendly cultivation methods. Since 2014, we have completely converted our production to 100% sustainable certified cocoa that means we only use certified cocoa like organic, Naturland, Fairtrade or Rainforest Alliance.

We use other important raw materials in our chocolates in addition to cocoa such as sugar, nuts or milk for which we also strive for a transparent and sustainable supply chain. We do not use genetically modified raw materials and additives in our chocolates.


In 2020 we applied and received a certificate as a nominated company for the CSR Award OWL 2020. The jury especially praised our long-standing social commitment. 
"Weinrich's CSR commitment is not only so convincing because it has a multifaceted concept and covers the key areas of market relevance, employee orientation, environmental friendliness and community. It is also exemplary because it has been consistently developed over the years, linking the various levels of action and thus providing a coherent overall picture. Hopefully, it will also encourage imitation. "*
