At Loacker, we like to do things well

Our every decision, our every action, aims to minimizing our environmental impact and make sure that those who work with and for Loacker feel at ease. We know, that we leave this planet to our children, and every day we work to protect its resources. 

  • We support cocoa and vanilla farmers and their communities in remote villages in Madagascar, Ecuador, and the Ivory Coast by providing for fair working and living conditions
  • We run both our bakeries on 100% green electricity 
  • We recycle the waste heat from the baking process in both our bakeries. Thanks to this, we saved approximately 635,000 gallons (2.4 million liters) of fuel between 2013 and 2018; this represents approximately 7,500 tons less CO2
  • We recycle wafers that are unsaleable because they are broken, but otherwise in perfect condition and ensure minimal food waste in the process
  •  78% of our used residual materials can be recycled
  • In 2021 we reduced the plastic in our packaging on average by 15% which equals 6 full school busses or trucks 
  • By the end of 2021 50% of our transports from our bakeries to our warehouses will be executed by LNG fueled trucks. LNG is better than any other fossil fuel for the environment. The combustion of natural gas releases significantly less CO2, and virtually no ash or particulates. And as it evaporates rapidly when exposed to the air, it leaves no residue on water or soil.
  • By 2025, we aim to cover 50% of our hazelnut requirements by our own Italian Hazelnut orchards and long term supply contracts

 

both our bakeries rely on 100%green electricity supply?

“Sustainable development means bringing environmental aspects on par with social and economic interests. Sustainable economy means we have to ensure our children and grandchildren are left with an intact social, environmental and economic structure.”


We take responsibility for the people

Life for us is the people we love, those we work with, those who identify with our products. We consider those who work with us as part of the larger Loacker family: we look after their personal and professional development with mutual respect and esteem. We care for our suppliers, with whom we like to build long-term, positive relationships. We believe that those who live on the other side of the world, in close contact with nature and its fruits, have a lot to learn but just as much to teach us. We believe in you, who inspire us always to do our best. You, who appreciate our work. You, who derive pleasure from our constant striving for quality and perfection.

 

 

We take responsibility for our environment

But there can be no real care for people without care for the most important thing that people have: the environment. Drawing on the resources offered by our planet in a responsible and frugal manner, protecting both flora and fauna, and helping to reduce pollution: these are things we do and that we are truly proud of.

We take responsibilty for our ingredients

Naturalness and sustainability as constant objectives. Raw materials – our greatest treasure – are, and will always be, the focus of our closest attention. This is the only way we know for creating truly excellent specialties that will win over anyone at first bite.
