This really is at the centre of my business. I feel passionately about reducing the impact we have on the world around us, and I really do believe that we each need to do our bit. As such, I’m absolutely committed to using eco-friendly packaging in all my products. I can assure you that you won’t ever find my bonbons sitting in plastic inserts, or wrapped in unnecessary packaging. I use recyclable Kraft paper boxes for my bonbons, and Kraft paper pouches for my bars, which means they do look quite plain, but this is a good lesson in not judging a book by its cover – the contents are anything but plain!
There are huge sustainability and welfare issues surrounding cocoa farming, including deforestation, child labour and farmer poverty. For this reason I only use chocolate from producers that are committed to tackling these problems, All the chocolate I use comes under either the Cocoa Horizons programme, or the Cacao Trace programme.
