Cultivation & procurement

Locally sourced raw materials


We are committed to using high-quality milk which is good for the environment and good for your health. In terms of animal feeding, our objective is to replace less sustainable nutrients, such as soya, and to support traditional feeding methods, such as fresh grass.

Imported raw materials

Cocoa and coffee

By the end of 2015, ELSA will be using UTZ or Max Havelaar Fairtrade certified cocoa and coffee for the majority of its chocolate and coffee products.This decision guarantees farmers good social conditions while ensuring the sustainability of the ecosystems.


ELSA has signed direct contracts with seed producers and tests are under way to establish a long-term, local supply of soya. To ensure superior quality, varieties have therefore been planted to determine which are best suited to our regions.
