Our fine signature 75% cocoa dark chocolate with nuggets of intense sour cherry. The sublime combination found in Blackforest bar was inspired by a chocolate ice cream rippled with mouth puckering sour cherry, first tasted by Diana 25 years ago, when she was working in Germany.
Our 75% cocoa house blend Dark chocolate is made under the Raisetrade initiative using chocolate grown and produced tree to bar in Madagascar and Columbia retaining more of the profit in the country of origin and providing employment and development of higher skills in the country of origin.
Madagascar grows some of the finest cacao beans in the world. We work with Chocolat Madagscar trinitario bean dark chocolate that has delicious hints of red berry fruits.
Chocolate Madagascar or Chocolaterie Robert as they are known locally, are a Madagascan chocolate company established in 1940 making all their chocolate from tree to bar on the island. In 2016 we visited Chocolat Madagascar and followed the cocoa trail from the plantation in the Sambirano valley to the factory in Antananarivo.
We sponsor and support the Avokany Avoko Faravohitra children’s home in Madagascar.
We are now working with Colombian dark chocolate produced in Colombia by Casa Luker. Using fino de aroma fine beans the chocolate is again made tree to bar in Columbia and supports the local economy.

All packaging is made in the UK.
The clear bags the bars are packed in are made from film that is both biodegradable and compostable in compliance with EN13432. This breaks down within a natural environment within 22 days and actually helps to enrich the soil in the process.
The bar cardboard pack is sourced from managed sustainable plantations and can be recycled in household cardboard packaging recycling.
The brown cardboard outers are made from FSC certified sources, are 100% recyclable and are sealed with 100% recyclable brown kraft tape.
The green coloured bubble wrap we use is Biodegradable. These are made from a formulation containing a mixture of a metal ion pro-oxidant system and a biodegradation initiator. These bubble bags will promote the growth of microbial colonies to break them down over 9-12 months and is dependant on temperature and where they are stored. The process of degradation is accelerated in higher temperatures and high UV levels. It helps prevent our landfill sites being filled with polythene products that will take thousands of years to degrade !
We don’t seal the bags so please also reuse them for your own parcels.
The larger Ultipac bubbles are made from reclaimed plastic. By volume only 1% of the material remains when burst and can be recycled in household plastic bins. Or please reuse them for your own parcels.
We use DPD Local for most of our deliveries. They are Carbon Neutral through efficient delivery vehicles and carbon offsetting.
