Original Beans
+ Paper & Tea

An exciting fusion of taste and innovation: Original Beans and Paper & Tea present a new partnership celebrating quality, sustainability, and regenerative values.


Vegan Pecan Caramel Pop made with Original Beans

We’ve teamed up with our friends over at The Nice Company to create a treat that’s much more than just a good popsicle. Their new Vegan Pecan Caramel pop doesn’t just taste good, it’s also good for our planet and the people around you. An organic Nice pop and Fair+ Original Beans chocolate; a lovely combo.


ISM (International Trade Fair for Sweets and Snacks)

Together with the colleagues of the Club der Confiseure, Germany's most distinguished chocolate makers, we kicked off the world's largest sweets fair, ISM, with a key note and some serious talk, followed by a collective booth to meet and greet community as well as customers.


Chocolate Scorecard Winner 2024

Many chocolate companies claim they are championing sustainability, but where is the proof? Enter the Chocolate Scorecard, a rigorous testing system to do just that. In 2023 Original Beans were ranked as No1, and were the only company to receive Green Eggs in every category. This year we are proud to say that we have retained our title, as winners of the Good Egg Award in 2024!

Together 100% regenerative

You are a chocolate lover, a cacao grower, a regeneration partner.  You have joined our mission together to regenerate what we consume.  Without you, no impact happens. Some call what connects us a “supply chain”.  But aren’t we rather a value community? Sharing equal values in a community  from the cacao gardens to the food kitchens? Only together, we create the impact. Feel part, feel proud, read on.
