It is my job to set the Company up for future success in terms of people, processes, and infrastructure. The keys to accomplishing this center around teamwork and collaboration. I feel that a group of people will always come up with better ideas than any individual could develop on his or her own. We must work as one team when we communicate and execute on new initiatives.Daniel Studer, CEO

Commitment to Sustainability
In addition to being a global leader in the premium chocolate category, Lindt USA also takes pride in leading by example when it comes to sustainable and ethical farming practices, production methods, and consumption. Since 2008, Lindt & Sprüngli has invested more than $10 million dollars towards the traceability and verification of the cocoa bean supply chain. To formalize our commitment, the Lindt & Sprüngli Farming Program was created in 2008 to provide training, funding, and resources to support our farming partners across the globe. Since the Program’s inception in Ghana alone, Lindt & Sprüngli has trained more than 41,000 cocoa farmers in good agricultural, social and environmental practices to ensure the preservation of their land and communities. Additionally, more than 29 computer labs and resource centers have been built, and more than 137 clean drinking water wells have been installed. By partnering with our cocoa bean farmers directly, Lindt has been able to monitor the health and wellbeing of farm workers, and ensure that our customers and consumers continue to receive the highest-quality product possible; one of the foundational pillars of the Lindt & Sprüngli credo.Sustainability Report
