HALBA takes responsibility across the entire value chain from cultivation to consumption.
We do our best to ensure that no areas are deforested, degraded or converted for the cultivation of our raw materials. In order to manage the available land in an environmentally friendly and economical way, we focus on dynamic agroforestry. We also focus on social aspects and are committed to a living income for the small-scale farmers, which helps to prevent exploitative child labour. In addition to its projects in the countries of origin, HALBA ensures sustainable production at its headquarters in Pratteln. This includes producing and using renewable energy, avoiding unnecessary packaging and using more sustainable packaging materials.
The policies and action plans below show that our words are followed up by actions:
