A Lot Of Chocolates was established in 2004 out of a desire to allow people the opportunity to buy the very best quality chocolates without worrying about the way it was produced or what ingredients it contained. We also look for chocolates that will fit the needs of people on restricted diets and offer a vast range of dairy free chocolates, wheat free chocolates, gluten free chocolates, soya free chocolates and vegan chocolates.
As an ethical company wherever possible we try to ensure that the chocolates we sell are either Fairtrade chocolates, organic chocolates or both. The majority of our chocolate is produced in the UK by smaller independent chocolatiers these include Moo Free Chocolates, Montezuma's chocolates and Booja Booja chocolates.
As a company we re-use packaging whenever we can as well as most of the paper, card and other waste products that are produced in the running of our business. Where possible we use biodegradable packaging to post items in. We also re-use all postal boxes and bubble wrap that are still in a re-useable state and recycle over 92% of all waste the we do have to throw away. In addition, we are also a genuine equal opportunities employer who currently employ just over 50% women.
We regularly support the great work of Friends of the Earth, a charity that is inspiring solutions to environmental problems and the Soil Association, a charity that encourages a natural way of farming and growing vegetables that works in harmony with nature.
Our products show that you do not have to compromise on quality to be ethical. In fact, our organic chocolate are superior to many. You do not have to compromise on choice either as our range of fair trade chocolates clearly demonstrates.
We will no longer be stocking any Green and Black's products. Since its take over by Cadbury's it appears in our eyes to have slowly become an unethical brand. We have also been informed after doing business with them for several years that we no longer have an account as our spend is under £50,000 a year. They no longer have interest in supporting smaller independent companies and seem to prefer the likes of Tesco's. However, we will continue to bring you delicious chocolates from more ethical companies.
