Sustainability

Did you know all our chocolate is rain forest alliance certified. See more details further down this page. The latest news is that we have moved to using clear compostable bags to display our chocolates. Our boxes and inserts are recyclable and we would encourage you to bring back our chocolate boxes and tins to refill or if you prefer why not use your own? We have also made a positive move with our energy suppliers and now use renewable energy.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is quite simple – Handmade chocolate at a price that is fair for both cocoa farmers and customers.

 

Our Ethics

Chocolates and Truffles have recently made the decision to make all our chocolates from rainforest alliance cocoa. It takes a great deal of time to grow and harvest cocoa beans and sustainable farming is the only solution if we want to continue enjoying this amazing chocolate product. We also use single origin chocolate using selected beans from different areas of the world with the chocolate originating from sustainable, supported farms. See more on our sustainability policy with packaging and energy above.

Its not just about suppliers, it’s also about being aligned with what our customers really want and offering fair prices so that we can continue to support each other. We enjoy creating delicious chocolates for our customers and hope we always go that extra mile in ensuring we give customers what they would like.

 

Vegan and Free From

We are starting to make a few changes to this category so that it is more manageable for our chocolate making activities.  This category includes vegan / dairy free, no added sugar, gluten free and alcohol free. Our vegan bars have a whole new look and we’ve increased the range. The new range of vegan products are also gluten free with rice milk replacing dairy. The vegan chocolate is lactose free and soya free. If you have a dairy allergy please read the allergen section below. The No Added Sugar section offers a range of chocolate bars.

Allergens

Every care is taken in making these chocolates using dedicated equipment but if you have an allergy that may result in an anaphylactic reaction please be aware that there is always a small risk of cross contamination from allergens in such a small work space. Please be aware nuts are stored and handled on site.

Corporate/Trade/Events

In relation to the online shop we have now added a corporate gift section. Please contact us for more informaton. We are also happy to sell to cafes and restaurants.Weddings and Events are also a pleasure to create chocolates for; we will make bespoke chocolates if you want something you don’t see in the shop.
