Sustainability is built into our strategy, purpose and business goals.
We’re doing our bit to make a difference.
We’re making sustainable choices across our enterprise to save money and protect our planet.
We only use Callebaut chocolate. For every Callet™ of the Finest Belgian Chocolate range, Callebaut sources 100% sustainable cocoa.
The Sustainable Development Goals, set up by the United Nations, are the “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.” They address the global challenges we all face, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environment degradation, peace and justice.
Our Sustainability strategy has been built into our purpose. We’re building a sustainable future through our commitments to tackle the main challenges facing planet earth.
We use fruit, vegetables and herbs grown on the site within chocolate recipes, and sell surplus stock to local businesses.
By 2025 we will reduce our waste even further by a minimum of 20%.
For one of our most popular products, lollipops, we no longer use plastic sticks, we use biodegradable wood and paper sticks.
We're looking at ways we can package our full range attractively, offer a level of protection for transportation but remain sustainable and reduce the amount of plastic we use.
We are part of the North Yorkshire Turtle Dove project, offering protection for this endangered species.
We have installed bee and insect houses throughout the site, offering a natural way to support and encourage pollination.
We adapted our out-buildings for a pair of resident barn owls. According to the Barn Owl Trust there are an estimated 4,000 - 5,000 pairs of barn owls living in the British Isles.
