Our new Unwrapped (TM) range is for customers who want to enjoy our chocolates without gift packaging. It presents our finest award winning fresh cream ganaches in minimally packaged plastic free packaging. It is a complementary offering to our chocolate boxes which are also evolving over the summer to be plastic free.
home compostable minimal packaging
Our Unwrapped (TM) chocolates are packaged in Home compostable Natureflex bags made from plants not plastic. They will be tied with natural Rafia. Once you’ve enjoyed your chocolates the bag can be home composted, put into food waste or even garden waste collections in many areas. It is plant based and will start to rapidly degrade in three weeks.
We’ve been looking at all aspects of our packaging and how to make it more sustainable. The obvious solution was to offer minimally packaged chocolates as a complementary alternative to our chocolate boxes – Matthew
Our truffles are made with fresh cream delivered twice a week from Ivy House Farm
We are using a natural Raffia tie and are working to source this from Madagascar via our friends at the charity Small Steps for Africa
We will add to the Unwrapped Chocolate range over the next few weeks and actively adjust chocolate stock levels in the range to match chocolates freshly made that week

Plastic Free Packaging
We use thick organic Jersey cream for our ganaches and caramels delivered twice a week by farmer Geoffrey Bowles from Ivy House Farm Beckington
We even adopted Cocoa the Cow!
Last summer we committed to being Plastic Free by the end of 2019. We’re about 90% there. Our new (and top secret) Christmas items are all plastic free and packaged minimally and beautifully.
Our chocolate boxes are in progress and we are aiming for the end of the summer for these. We’ve sourced new packaging for our Chocolate Salamis and will be phasing this in over the summer.
It’s not just the large items, we’re also looking more closely at ribbons and ties. From there it will be wholesale chocolate trays….
…All of our Mezzanine and cool store room lighting is now switched from fluorescent to LED – and we’ve bought all new LED lighting for our chocolate making room, we just need to find a pause in making chocolates to fit them!
We have used 100% renewable energy from Good Energy since 2016.
