Natural raw materials

Natural and fair

«natural and honest»,
also for our raw materials

With a strict, self-imposed raw materials charter, we want to give our customers the certainty that we manufacture our HUG, DAR-VIDA and Wernli products from the most natural raw materials possible. The charter regulates the use of raw materials for the market assortment in the retail trade and gastronomy in the form of a guideline.

Our Charter of Raw Ingredients

We manufacture our products with raw materials that are as natural as possible. We also attach importance to fair and sustainable cultivation and trade practices.

Eggs

Only free range eggs are used in our productions.

Cocoa

We have been buying only Rainforest Alliance-certified cocoa in the mass balance model since 2013.

Hazelnuts

We only source Rainforest Alliance certified hazelnuts.

Palm Oil

If palm oil, then only from sustainable cultivation. Since 2016, we have only purchased 100 percent certified palm oil in the RSPO Segregated standard.

A minimum of additives

Additives are added so that they fulfil a certain function and achieve a desired effect in the product. We limit additives to the absolute minimum necessary.

No preservatives

Preservatives trigger intolerance reactions in consumers - reason enough for us to refrain from using such substances.

Raw materials without the use of genetically modified plants

Products from genetically modified plants are not accepted by consumers. Therefore, we do not use any ingredients or additives in our products that have been produced with the help of genetically modified microorganisms.
