The ingredients of passion
If you only use good ingredients, you will get exceptional quality – which you can taste! This is because the flavour of our products comes exclusively from the exquisite ingredients.
The secret that makes Loacker so irresistible and globally successful requires a lot of experience. With dedication and an unerring eye, we devote ourselves to the careful selection of the ingredients:With dedication and an unerring eye, we devote ourselves to the careful selection of the ingredients: Italian hazelnuts, real Bourbon vanilla, delicious cocoa, sun-ripened raspberries, fine Loacker chocolate according to our own recipes and high quality milk. Categorically, we do not use hydrogenated fats in the production of our premium specialities.
The non-hydrogenated coconut oil lends our creams their tender melting characteristics on the one hand, and, on the other hand, ensures, thanks to its neutral flavour, that the bouquet of the raw materials we use can fully develop.
Since our foundation more than 90 years ago, we have exclusively been using chocolate in our chocolate products that is traditionally made from classic raw materials such as cocoa butter, cocoa mass and sugar, and milk powder for the milk chocolate. According to patisserie style, we place great importance on premium quality for all raw materials.
However, not only is the quality of our raw materials close to our hearts but also preservation of nature which creates them. That is why we campaign for the protection of the environment and nature for example with the use of state-of-the-art production processes and technologies. The waste heat from the wafer ovens, for example, is used to heat the rooms, thanks to heat recovery. And, of course, we also consider the well-being and health of our employees. That is why safety at work is our highest priority.
This means that millions of people in the world can happily go for Loacker products with a clear conscience.
