This chocolate bar is vegetarian, wonderfully whacky with blocks in irregular sizes to show how profits in the global chocolate industry are unfairly divided. The bottom of the bar has a design that represents the map of equatorial West Africa. This chocolate bar is big enough to share - if you have to.
This bar is suitable for vegetarians but not suitable for vegans
Tony’s Chocolonely is the yummy brainchild of Teun van de Keuk – a Dutch journalist who exposed child slave labour in the chocolate in the cocoa industry. Teun (Dutch for Tony) was shocked to discover how rife slave labour of both children and adults is in West Africa where 60% of the world's cocoa beans are grown and decided to take action. In 2005, he set up his own Fairtrade chocolate business, making delicious chocolate bars that are guaranteed to be grown and manufactured in a process that excludes slave labour. Break the chains of slavery with every delicious bite.
Tony’s Chocolonely chocolate is certified Fairtrade – a certification standard that sets minimum social and environmental standards for the growers and environment, and sets a minimum price for co-operatives. Cocoa beans are farmed in Ghana and the Ivory Coast. Some of the beans used to make Tony’s Chocolonely chocolate are organically farmed but as the prime focus is on tackling the social harm caused by the cocoa industry, the bars are not currently certified as organic.
Eco-friendly at every step, Tony’s Chocolonely is made using cocoa beans grown by co-operatives who using environmentally-friendly methods with minimal pesticides and chemical fertilisers and without deforestation. To reduce the impact of climate change on cocoa farmers, all emissions from Tony’s Chocolonely manufacturing processes are offset by Justdiggit – an environmental organisation that supports projects that cool down the planet. Tony’s Chocolonely chocolate bars have eco-friendly, plastic-free packaging. 180g bars are packaged in aluminium foil and 100% recycled, uncoated paper, with other goodies packaged with a blend of recycled and sustainably sourced FSC-certified paper. When you finish your bar, just pop the wrapper into your recycling container.
