Eco Credentials

How we reduced our dependence on gas?

Our factory is 100% heated by biomass boilers which provides all the space heating to our offices and factory. We use wood chip from logs which have no commercial value to create a fuel that is used to create heat for our entire factory. This saves the timber from going into landfill and creates a renewable energy. All the timber we use is locally sourced from sustainable forests.

How are we reducing our dependence on electricity?

We have replaced all our old lighting system to the latest LED lights which use a fraction of the energy, and they are brighter which has allowed us to install less fittings.
We have a 50Kw PV system on the roof which generated a large portion of our electricity requirements. Over the summer, we create an excess of electricity which is fed back onto the grid.

Our suppliers:

We understand the importance of sourcing our ingredients and packaging from ethical and eco-friendly sources.

Our main ingredient is chocolate. All our chocolate is supplied from manufacturers in the UK and Europe from large manufacturers who take their ESG (environmental, social and governance) responsibilities very seriously. They measure a large number of criteria including (but not limited to) the following areas: greenhouse gas reduction, water usage, deforestation, injuries at work, child labour, etc.

Our main source of direct packaging is cardboard. The board we use is approved to come into food material contact (FMC). All our printed cardboard that comes into contact with confectionery is sourced from mills that use FSC material. The mills are powered by renewable electricity. FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified wood means that the forests have been managed in an environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable manner.

  • All our card is recoverable through composting and biodegradation.

Another major source of direct packaging is aluminium foil which is used to wrap our chocolates.

  • • All our foil is fully recyclable.

Our waste:

We are constantly reviewing all the waste that our company produces and we are in contact with our suppliers about driving out any waste packaging together. All our waste is separated into 4 streams: metal, cardboard, plastic and general waste. All our metal, plastic and cardboard waste is recycled. We have reduced our general waste by 60% in the last 2 years.
