It is our firm belief that the ability to operate and develop our business sustainably, with respect to both people and our planet, plays a significant role in pursuing and ensuring our continued growth and success.
As the Danish market leader in the confectionery sector, we have 1,200 employees, 1,300 suppliers, and customers and consumers in more than 100 countries. We also work with 5,000 cocoa farmers. All of this calls for a determined approach to operating our business in a responsible manner.
We have a responsibility to all of them. Not only to continue developing our long history of proud craftsmanship, visionary enterprise and good quality. We also have a responsibility to constantly fight for responsble sourcing of cocoa and other raw materials; to ensure that the proper framework conditions are in place to continue our responsible production of high quality products; and to support our consumers in making conscious and responsible choices.
