Fairtrade fortnight is in its 20 th year in 2015 running from 26th February – 11th March. At Seed and Bean we pride ourselves on trading fairly and support the foundation as much as we can, in as many ways as we can, through the buying of our cocoa and chocolate production and also promotion year on year. Seed and Bean is the only 100% ethically accredited chocolate company (Good Shopper Guide 2011,
12, 13, 14, 15, 16,17) and our trading and green credentials are vitally important to us as a brand.
Currently trade often works with profit prioritised at the expense of vulnerable people. Fair Trade as a growing global phenomenon puts people before profit. The principles of fair trade include a living wage, environmental sustainability and social justice and at Seed and Bean we are proud to say you can trace our chocolate from field to store. We produce chocolate with a conscience.
Here’s the reasons why our organic, ethically sourced Fairtrade chocolate is the only one you need:
We have no ‘hints of’ or ‘flavourings’ in our bars. If we can’t use “real”, we don’t make it and we have done that with our 18 full-flavoured bars including; Chile, Lime, Coffee, Coconut, Cornish Sea Salt, Raspberry, Cardamom, Poppy Seed, Hemp and available in either Milk, white, Dark with 12 being suitable for vegan and vegetarian.
Tantalise your tastebuds with some of our daring combinations – like Chilli & Lime for a real kick, or Aromatic Fennel a delicious dark bar with a fresh liquorice taste from the fennel.
We appreciate the use of real, 100% organic ingredients for example our wonderful raspberries, freeze dried and raw for a huge fruit kick, whole cardamom pods, crushed and so very exotic and alluring.
We use 100% compostable wrappers produced in Cumbria using primarily Eucalyptus leaves.
Every bar is handmade in the UK in very small batches (45 litres, most companies start at 10,000).
All new flavours are worked and developed at length, they may take longer to come to fruition than other brands as we ensure they fit our ethical criteria but don’t compromise on taste or quality.
