“This is an honour for me, but more importantly, great beans make great chocolate, and all these awards are down to our brilliant farmers that we work directly with across the globe to source the finest quality cacao. I have won these awards for the farmers, as they are the driving force behind all our products, and it is so important that we celebrate them with these awards.”

“We travelled to Colombia to investigate, using techniques such as DNA sequencing, and fed back our research to the farmers with processes they can implement into their cacao cultivation to ensure they get a good quality crop each time. For these good quality beans, they can get paid at least double the standard market rate. We have already paid 69% more! The awards we have won are proof that using knowledge and education, we can achieve great beans and make great chocolate, AND empower farmers around the whole world!”
