Our Story

our story

We don’t stand still at Coco Pzazz. Since we became “Accidental Chocolate Makers” in 2013, our range of chocolate buttons and bars has constantly evolved – welcoming new tastes, designs and packaging along the way. We now produce 20+ flavours – with more in the pipeline. As we have developed, our flavours and packaging have become bolder and brighter – we hope that you like them!

We source our ingredients and packaging carefully – and believe passionately that everyone should do what they can to improve the environment. In June 2019 we launched our Tread Lightly programme – this puts the environment at the heart of our business. We’re reviewing all aspects of how we work to ensure that we’re operating in an environmentally sustainable way and supporting rural cocoa farmers in Ghana – where most of our chocolate is grown. We have sourced our chocolate through the Cocoa Horizons programme for several years, but now will be working with the Village by Village charity to provide additional support to the rural villages in chocolate growing areas.

We also now support Size of Wales – a charity with a goal of protecting an area of tropical forest TWICE the size of Wales (that’s 4 million hectares) For more information: www.sizeofwales.org.uk

Finally, the fabulous flavours that we use are developed by a Government approved women’s enterprise in Kerala, India. Over 80% of the factory workers are women and most come from disadvantaged backgrounds, normally after being deserted or widowed. Women of all ages, castes and religions are welcome.

We will update our blog each month with a Tread Lightly update, and will also include our progress in our newsletter.

Our social impact

The extracts that we use to flavour much of our range come from a Women’s social enterprise in Kerala, India.

We believe it is vital to understand the conditions that surround cocoa farming and to make sure that the chocolate that we buy actually benefits farming communities across the globe.

“We could buy cheaper chocolate – but you do get what you pay for and – if we knew that we were buying ingredients that exploited growers or the environment, that would just leave a bad taste in our mouths!” — Lori Whinn
