For more info on this, please get in touch or follow our social media feeds. We aim for complete transparency in our sourcing and would be happy to talk with you.

Our main focus is taste, quality & clarity – which is ultimately the result of careful and sustainable farming practices. Although some of our chocolates may be organic, we do not advertise our chocolate as being so.
