Fair growth on the confectionery shelf

25.3.2021 A traditional Viennese company is now relying on fair trade for an Austrian cult product: All waffle and slice products from the house Men are made with Fairtrade cocoa. This is another important step in terms of sustainability for the well-known confectionery manufacturer, whose products Casali Schokobananen and Victor Schmidt Mozartkugeln have long been Fairtrade certified. "It is important to us that the people who grow the cocoa for our products receive a fair price for their work," explains Manner Marketing Manager Ulf Schöttl. This makes Manner the largest processor of Fairtrade cocoa in Austria. This year, however, the seal itself will only gradually be found on the men’s cuts. The reason is ecological: Before new packaging material is used, the previous one should be used up.
