Organic means working with nature, not against it. It means that our ingredients have been produced to the highest standards, using fewer pesticides, no artificial additives, preservatives or GM ingredients whilst adhering to the highest standards of animal welfare. Organic is better for the planet and better for our bodies. Choosing organic is an easy way to avoid a number of potentially harmful chemicals such as synthetic pesticides, weedkillers and many additives and preservatives. We passionately believe that chocolate should be organic to avoid these chemicals, especially as cocoa is one of the most heavily sprayed crops.
Ground breaking research published in the British Journal of Nutrition has found significant nutritional differences between organic and non-organic farming. In 2014, the team at Newcastle University found organic crops are up to 60% higher in a number of key antioxidants than conventionally grown ones. So, you can eat organic chocolate and feel pretty good about it... (Information taken from www.soilassociation.org)
