CHOCOLATIER & CACAO GROWER
The cacao beans we use for our couverture chocolate come from our own plantations in Ecuador.
We believe that making good chocolate comes from taking the right human and environmental approach.
An approach based on treating men, women and children fairly and on caring for soils and their perpetual cycles, to ensure they prosper for us and for future generations.
That’s why we decided to become cacao growers.
The cacao beans we use for our couverture chocolate* come from our own plantations in Ecuador, to make sure that everything is done right from bean to bar. We tend lovingly to our chocolate throughout the transformation process to guarantee good taste and quality at the right price for you to enjoy with friends, safe in the knowledge that what you’re eating is ethically produced.
Because by eating good chocolate, you’re contributing to a sustainable future.
*Except where specified that cacao is sourced elsewhere.
THE ART OF CHOCOLATE ACCORDING TO JEFF
in a nutshell
To us, it’s all about getting the right balance between great taste, an affordable price, naturally sourced quality ingredients, treating people fairly and treading lightly on the Earth.
The quality of our chocolate underpins everything we do. We’re meticulous about the provenance and composition of our products. We develop our recipes with attention to detail and quality foremost in our minds, from naturally sourced ingredients and without hydrogenated vegetable oils, GMOs* or palm oil.
All our couverture chocolate is made with cacao beans from our own plantations in Ecuador** and guaranteed 100% pure cocoa butter. The high cocoa content ensures the best possible intensity: 35% cocoa for our milk chocolate and at least 60% cocoa for our dark chocolate. And we still keep the sugar content low, as more cocoa means less sugar.
It’s in our factories that the know-how and passion of our master chocolatiers come into their own as they strive each day to bring you novel combinations of tastes and textures.
