Chocolate lovers! We need to talk.
Our recipes have received a chocolaty upgrade, but our mission remains the same: we want to make delicious, sustainable chocolate. And there are reasons why we have adjusted the recipes. The majority of our customers told us that they would not buy the bars 1.0 a second time because of the taste. That hurt. The fact is, as a company with bars 1.0, we would have lost our shelf space in the supermarkets! In addition, we can only change the dirty chocolate industry in the long term if many people are involved. For more positive impact out there.
Impact weighs more than sugar
We replace coconut blossom sugar with organic beet sugar. We obtain this regionally from Germany, Switzerland and France and will save hundreds of tons of CO2 in the future simply through shorter transport routes. In addition, beet sugar is very resource-efficient and low-emission in production. There are varieties with less and varieties with a little more sugar - but still well below the sugar content of conventional milk chocolate.
There's something new in there
The taste of our old bars was too special. Most people out there see chocolate as a candy and treat themselves to a piece every now and then. True to the motto: Enjoyment in moderation!
In the new bars, hazelnuts and organic sunflower oil from Europe ensure our unique creaminess. When selecting the raw materials, we stick to our product principles: everything is made from plant-based ingredients, organic farming, fair trade cocoa and packaged in an environmentally friendly way. To this end, every product invests in a greener world.
Inside mmm, outside ohhh
All products are packaged in an environmentally friendly manner in home-compostable cellulose film or recyclable paper packaging. The best choice for disposing of our film is the in-house compost. There it decomposes after approx. 6 months. If you don't have compost, just put them in the yellow sack or general waste. The film is thermally recycled - no harmful substances are released when our film is burned. You can simply dispose of the paper packaging with the waste paper.
We thought about it, but...
This is difficult on the production side. Especially with regard to recipe planning and processes in large-scale production. We also focus on the greatest possible sustainability when purchasing raw materials. Coconut sugar has to travel thousands of kilometers across the world while sugar beet grows on the doorstep.
For the planet
Every product sold supports our reforestation projects.
Our products are packaged in very easily recyclable waste paper.
The cocoa beans from Peru are 100% fair trade and organically grown.
