3 Fundamentals for Flourishing Cocoa Trees
Lindt & Sprüngli’s bean to bar journey begins at the farm. This is where we ensure that the cocoa trees have the ideal conditions to help them flourish and produce the finest quality cocoa beans for our luxury chocolate:
Warm weather: cocoa trees thrive in high temperatures – ideal conditions range between 18 to 32 degrees celsius.
Substantial rainfall: hydration through rainfall is the most important climatic factor for strong cocoa tree growth.
Plenty of shade: cocoa trees flourish in their natural environment – the Amazonian rainforest – where they are surrounded by natural shade.
