SUSTAINABILITY / ETHICS
We use sustainable and ethically sourced chocolate supplied by Barry Callebaut. They have great programs in place that supports third world growers by building schools and hospitals in country. We have had the privilege to visit these in person and have confidence in these programs and their longevity/sustainability.
We also use Australian grown chocolate which is to Australian standards and supports Australian growers and manufacturers.
Our policy is that all our ingredients contain no palm oil.
Wherever possible we use locally grown ingredients including Murray River Salt Flakes, Almondco almonds and freeze dried strawberries from Mornington Peninsula, as well as local cream and butter.
We have beehives on site and we use some of the honey harvested, in our honeycomb. The rest remains in the hive for our bees, and our residential neighbours enjoy bumper fruit and veggie crops as a side benefit!
Regarding our packaging, we continue to make changes in our range to move towards recyclable and biodegradable. Additionally, always aiming towards removing unnecessary ‘excess’ in packaging. The process for changing over our entire range takes time and at this time it is a work in progress.
