Principle 7 – Eliminate waste/Compostable

Reduced waste by


for all retail packaging

In nature, waste equals food. All creatures and nutrients flow through an endless cycle. Human products don’t. Thus they create an exponentially growing amount of stuff that clogs our oceans, soils and bodies. Making consumer packaging from renewable and compostable materials is urgent.

Our retail packaging is 100% plastic-free and reduces waste by 82% compared to the packaging of other chocolate companies. All our retail bars are wrapped in the world’s most climate-friendly paper and the first certified garden-compostable food foil. Also the smaller bar formats and retail Chef’s Buttons are made from 100% biodegradable packaging and are plastic-free.
