At Green & Black's we create great–tasting chocolate, something which we believe using only organic ingredients helps us to achieve.
Green & Black’s has always been an organic brand. The term "organic" when applied to crops, animal rearing and food in general is actually referring to the sustainability of the land so it can continue to provide food without becoming exhausted of nutrients.
We believe organic represents quality as it uses more considered production techniques and avoids the use of artificial fertilisers and pesticides and thereby encourages a more natural environment for both people and animals. Organic brings benefits to our food, health and the planet. Organic practices mean that farmers, animals and wildlife don’t come into contact with chemical fertilisers and pesticides. Rivers and soil are less polluted with chemicals and people eat foods that have not been sprayed with chemicals. We also believe that farmers who grow their crops organically are often more interested in, and concentrate on, the quality and taste of what they grow. They are more likely to choose varieties and growing methods that ensure they can successfully grow their crops without the use of chemicals. Our farmers grow their beans under the shade of rainforest trees alongside other crops like avocado, pineapple, coffee and bananas; such biodiversity helps safeguard our cocoa against disease. Organic farming is not open to the genetic modification that is increasingly important in agriculture to maximise yield in favour of taste.
For us, working with so many others on quality helps us realise and share our passion for delectably intense chocolate. From the orchards where we source our cocoa beans to the farms which provide cream for our ice cream, all are regularly visited to ensure they adhere to the strict guidelines which govern organic food production. This means every product we make is certified to the highest organic standards, giving consumers a guarantee of integrity. In the UK, this is the Soil Association.
