Sensory satisfaction, premiumization or plant-based ingredients: what is your next challenge? Our ingredients portfolio offers near endless natural, nutritious and delicious possibilities for new product development across categories. Learn more about some of our latest chocolate and confectionery application innovations. 

Hazelnut spread

A growing appetite for sweet spreads plus the ever-expanding plant-based market equals a huge opportunity for confectionery brands. That’s why we created a concept for a plant-based chocolate hazelnut spread that replaces milk powders with high roasted hazelnut flours. A creamy, rich hazelnut taste without the dairy.

Plant-based chocolate bar

What could possibly be better than a vegan chocolate bar made with our rich cocoa powder and filled with our macadamias, pistachios or hazelnuts? Rich, crunchy and sweet. Use cashew and almond defatted flour as a replacement for milk-based ingredients in great tasting chocolate mass.

Moonlight bonbon

Truffles have never been so eye-catching. With our extra white cocoa butter, color contrasts can be taken to new vivid heights. The perfect visual match for rich and indulgent fillings like hazelnut praline, dulce de leche and coffee, or caramel, lemon and ginger. 

Dark Ghana chocolate bar with whole hazelnuts

Different origins offer signature sensory profiles. Our concept for a premium dark Ghana 65% cocoa chocolate bar oozes indulgence with its thick tablet and fruity flavor profile unique to Ghanaian origin cocoa. It also leans on the potential of single-origin cocoa for giving consumers greater choice and traceability.


Our approach to sustainability is guided by our Purpose ‘To be the​ change for good food and a healthy future’. It is rooted in our belief that healthy, natural food is possible when people working in the food systems prosper and contribute to the restoration of the living world.


As the ones on the ground, in the heart of farming communities, we are well positioned to drive positive environmental and social change in communities and landscapes. And to accelerate and deliver change at scale, we are part of many multi-stakeholder partnerships. When we combine this impact with the application innovations of our chefs, we can offer sustainable choices to our customers and together, help feed the growing appetite for naturally good food.​

Cashew Trail

Cashew Trail

Each nut story starts with hard-working farmers and processing workers. Cashew Trail sets 2030 targets to tackle poverty and create economic opportunity. Let's improve the livelihoods of people in the cashew communities and grow farmer yields.

Hazelnut Trail

Hazelnut Trail

Our vision: creating a collaborative trail to sustainable hazelnuts by addressing the most pressing issues facing hazelnut farmers, their communities and migrant workers. Our goals build on the progress we’ve made over the last decade with our partners.
