Our Impact


We make chocolate the right way. 

That’s means doing what we can to minimise our impact on the planet and always striving to make the correct choices.

Since 2012 we have been committed to producing the finest chocolate, sustainably and ethically, with complete transparency and by being as responsible as possible about how we do it.

There are no artificial ingredients in our chocolate and there never will be. That’s because we understand that even the smallest choices can make the biggest difference. We source only the best natural ingredients in the most eco-conscious ways to reduce our impact on the environment. That’s what influences every single decision we make.

We endeavour to build a business that both our employees and our customers can be proud of. That means upholding our sustainability commitments, sticking to ethical practices, and taking any steps we can to make sure that we’re looking after our planet—because it’s the only one we’ve got

Every day some of the most biodiverse rainforests in the world are suffering from deforestation in order to supply the global chocolate business. While cocoa trees will naturally grow in harmony under the canopy of rainforests, they have been developed over the years to grow in what is known as the full-sun system, which requires the removal of all surrounding trees.

Removal of the canopy and growing in the full-sun system may make harvesting easier and quicker, but it also leads to devastating damage to the surrounding area when rainforests are cleared to make way for cocoa farms. As a result, acres and acres of rainforest have been destroyed across Africa to make way for cocoa farms, leading to a catastrophic loss of habitat for so much of the rainforest’s wildlife. Forest elephants and chimpanzees have suffered badly, along with other plants, animals and birds that are part of the ecosystem.

We’ve also been extremely fortunate to be involved with charitable projects around the world with companies who are doing their part to save rainforests and their inhabitants.
