Company - Original Beans

Original Beans

We love making pure, delicious chocolates, but we didn’t create Original Beans just to put another bar on the shelf.

Original Beans was founded on a passion for replenishing what we consume, carrying on our founder’s family tradition of sustainability that began 220 years ago when his forefather Georg Hartig advised “to manage forests in such a way that future generations can reap the same benefit from them as the current one.”

Taste the Rare

Like other tree fruits, cacao is infused with flavours from the environment in which it grows. Since 2008, our “Bean Team” travels to the rarest places on earth to bring the most original cacao beans to you.

What a delicious, sustainable journey it continues to be. Original Beans chocolates consistently win the most prestigious tasting awards and are preferred by top chefs around the world. Our passion has led us to protect endangered wildlife, triple farmer incomes, build one of the world’s first climate-positive supply chains, and offer certified garden-compostable packaging.

One Bar: One Tree

Through our One Bar : One Tree programme, we have planted and preserved over 1 million trees in the cacao origins. When you break off a piece of Original Beans chocolate, not only are you a moment away from enjoying the rarest cacao beans in their purest form—you are breaking ground for a new sapling.
