You’ll be able to taste our passion for organic quality food in all our products.
We use organic and Fairtrade ingredients because we believe it is vital to the ongoing wellbeing of our people, our animals and the planet.
The journey of our 100gm bar range starts with the farmers cooperative called ‘Acopagro’. This Peruvian Fairtrade cooperative, made up of 2000 small-scale farmers, is based in the Amazon jungle. This long-standing cooperative supports education, opportunities for women and reforestation in the Amazon – while perfect growing conditions produce vibrant and a naturally fruity organic cocoa.
In addition to cocoa, these farmers also plant timber trees to increase the cocoa farmers’ long-term income. At the same time this planting will offset all carbon emissions produced during the chocolate manufacturing process. To be precise, 1 new tree is planted for every 1000 bars produced. Please see the inside of our packaging for a detailed depiction.
The secret to the quality of our chocolate has a lot to do with our ingredients. We only use organic, and when able we use Fairtrade certified. We never use refined white sugar and when technically possible we use coconut sugar. We don’t use milk products so all our products are suitable for a vegan diet.
FAIRTRADE We certify our products with Fairtrade so we know our farmers not only have a protected income, but are additionally given the education and support to produce quality and consistency in their yields. Because it is such an important part of our values, we are committed to Fairtrade and actively engage in supporting Fairtrade Australia and New Zealand.
ORGANIC All our chocolate is certified organic through either Biogro (New Zealand) or with the Bio Inspecta (EU) Organic Standart. Through European agriculture programmes our farmers gain additional ongoing support and direct assistance to improve their living standards and conserve the environment around them. This important support also includes:
- Zero interest loans for our farmers to obtain the correct tools.
- Free school uniforms for our farmers’ children.
- Educational seminars to ensure ongoing personal development.
Mint & Cocoa Nibs: Ground cocoa beans, raw cane sugar, cocoa butter, cocoa nibs, peppermint oil, ground Madagascar vanilla beans.
