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.

Together 100% regenerative

Our 'Made with' Original Beans Programme 

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.
