Product responsibility and product safety are an integral part of Cloetta’s production process. However, Cloetta has a certain responsibility for the entire life cycle of its products, from raw material supplier to recycling of the product packages. All of Cloetta’s suppliers undergo an approval process in which sustainability requirements are a natural part.
