We believe strongly in being fair to all, environmentally sound and having a positive impact in our community.
The majority of the ingredients in our chocolate (cocoa & sugar) come from our key partner in Colombia - Casa Luker. For over 50 years Casa Luker have worked directly with Colombian cocoa farmers and believe passionately in building lasting long term relationships based on sharing, mutual support, training & education.
Our founder Paul Morris has visited Colombia and seen first hand the work that Casa Luker are doing to educate farmers allowing them to increase crop yields and receive a premium for the cocoa they grow. By working with Casa Luker we ensure more of the initial processing is done in Colombia and therefore more of the profit from the cocoa stays in the country of origin.

We work closely with our suppliers to ensure that we are doing all we can to reduce our impact on the planet. Working with a local specialist waste company we are now recycling almost 90% of our waste, and together with our packaging supplier we are working towards making all of our retail packaging both recyclable and biodegradable. We also source all of our fruit, vegetables, milk, cream and cheese from Lancashire and Greater Manchester ensuring we are reducing food miles and supporting local producers.
We are passionate about small business and are proud to be based in Ramsbottom; a beautiful Lancashire mill town blessed with an array of quality independent businesses of all kinds. We are an active member of the Ramsbottom Business Group and the creators of the award winning Annual Ramsbottom Chocolate Festival.
Since 2008 we have also helped numerous good causes and donated in excess of £10,000 to local charities, schools and community groups.
