Sustainability

Sustainability

We say our chocolate is made without compromise. Being sustainable is as important to us as great taste. 

Ingredient Sourcing
Scale is everything and currently we partner with importers for our ingredients to meet our sustainability goals. E.g. our Peruvian organic cocoa supplier is committed to sustainable environmental practices and provides benefits to the growers and their families.

As our business grows in scale, we aim to work directly with farmers to create closer relationships and more financial rewards for them.

Organic Ingredients

All our ingredients are farmed organically, a more sustainable way to produce food. See our Organic page.

We use organic ingredients sourced from coconuts, including: coconut sugar, creamed coconut and coconut oil. Coconut sugar, which comes from tapping the coconut palm tree, is more sustainable than cane sugar. This is because coconut palms benefit the environment - they require very little water and improve soil quality. Tapping palm trees for sugar has been carried out for centuries and does not harm the trees nor affect their ability to produce coconuts.

We would never use palm oil in our products because of its negative environmental impact.

Packaging

We want all our product and delivery packaging to be recyclable or compostable as soon as possible. We are nearly there.

New, more sustainable options are always reviewed. For example:

  • Our foil backed paper in our chocolate bars is currently not recyclable. From November 2021, we will swap to a metallised paper foil which can be recycled with household card/paper recycling.
  • Currently, our fudge and buttons are packed in PP plastic bags, which are not readily recyclable. We are testing a fully recyclable pouch to be introduced in 2022.
