Natural · Honest
The HUG family promise
«natural and honest» by conviction : for a just and viable world, worth living in.
The HUG family promise “natural and honest” is the sustainable basis for our business activities. We want to ensure the long-term development of a total of seven areas of activity that reflect the sustainability efforts of the entire company. To do so requires that we constantly make improvements and further develop and deepen our culture of sustainability in every area of activity.
Subsequently, and in line with the HUG family motto, we intend to reduce the environmental footprint of our business activities in the long term.
In everything we do, we communicate our sustainability efforts actively, honestly and credibly both internally and externally – even with critical issues.

Swiss chocolate is famous the world over. We only use chocolate produced in Switzerland that does not substitute other vegetable fats for cocoa butter, although this is currently allowed.

We bake our biscuits exclusively using eggs from free-range production.
- No artificial flavourings
We only use natural flavourings in our high-quality Wernli biscuits.

In principle, no colourings are used in Wernli products except in the fruit in our Florentins, which has been prepared according to the same traditional recipe for decades.
