OUR GREEN POLICY

Go green with chocolate!

We recognise that our work may have a direct or indirect effect on our local and international environment. It is, therefore, our aim to reduce this impact by implementing our following Green Policy:

Cocoa Red GREEN POLICY

SUSTAINABLE COCOA AND INGREDIENTS

  • All cocoa is to be sourced from environmentally and socially responsible plantations.
  • Always disassociate yourself from cocoa bean producers who use abusive labour practices.
  • Always be willing to pay more for your cocoa beans. This does not only guarantee excellent quality cocoa beans, it also guarantees a fair price for the cocoa farmers.Reduce your ‘carbon foot print’, by sourcing local and seasonal produce at every opportunity.
  • Strive to ensure that all ingredients used are SUSTAINABLE (have been created using fair labour practices and at the lowest cost to our environment).

PACKAGING

  • Always ensure packaging is as environmentally friendly as possible.
  • Never ‘over package’ or use materials which add unnecessary volume.

REDUCE WASTE

  • To minimise waste, use our especially made shipment boxes.
  • Consumption of paper is to be kept to a minimum. Always ‘double side print’ whenever possible.
  • Recycle any waste paper which cannot be reused.
  • Limit your use of water and energy.

RECYCLING

  • Rinse and recycle all glass bottles.
  • Recycle all printer cartridges.
  • Re-use any suitable boxes we receive.
  • Compost all suitable left over ingredients.

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY

  • Always consider any chocolate related request which may benefit our community
  • Always offer work experience to at least one person per year.
