OUR COMMITTMENT TOWARDS PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT
We are aware that the chocolate supply chain involves numerous actors on a global level. Therefore, our zomprehensive commitment aims to reduce environmental impact and, most especially, create working conditions that value the extraordinary expertise of our Chocolate Artisans.
Being part of the Ferrarelle Group – a recognized Benefit Corporation – gives us an added value. This ensures that the evaluation of our “green” efforts is accompanied by corporate responsibility choices that embrace all stakeholders of production: the community, the territory and the environment.
We use photovoltaic panels to produce our own electricity. A 16,000 Kw/h system covers more than 30% of the energy we need.
For over 30 years, we have maintained a direct relationship with the production areas. We have established direct ties with producers who prioritize natural harvesting and drying methods that respect the environment and biodiversity. We collaborate with cooperatives that have UTZ, Rainforest Alliance, Alliance Biodiversity & CIAT.
