Fall in Love this Valentine’s Day with Chocolate and Love: February 2021 #Gifted

After a challenging 12 months for everyone it is still important to stand up and celebrate Love for our people and the planet Earth.  Even better let us celebrate with Chocolate.

Birgitte Hovmand and Richard O’Connor, loved up couple and founders Chocolate and Love have exactly what you need chocolate, chocolate, and lots of love with more chocolate.

People are important to Chocolate and Love which is why their cacao is sourced directly from the dedicate farmers who work within the Fairtrade certified cooperatives in Panama, Peru, The Dominican Republic, and Madagascar.

The focus is about sustainability and empowering the farmers enabling them to work for a Fairtrade Minimum price.  This money can be then used to help Farmers become more resilient to climate, educate their children, plan for the future and improve their communities.

Chocolate and Love care for our planet, so use FSC certified paper for their outer wrapper, plastic-free silver inner wrappers made from renewable wood which are completely biodegradable.

Even more impressive Chocolate and Love planted trees in Ethiopia and Tanzania in collaboration with an innovative re-forestation organisation called Weforest.org and are among their top 10 donors.  By planting back this offsets the production of the paper used, so by chomping Chocolate and Love’s yummy chocs you’re helping the planet too – sounds good to me!

Their premium organic Fairtrade mini and full-size chocolate bar boxes are amazing with Vegan and non-vegan options, so there’s something for everyone. The Chocolate and Love lovely libraries of chocolate Pure Dark/Dark filled with mini and tins are the perfect indulgent treat to gift to family, friends, loved ones or a gift from you to you to enjoy some self-care and you time.

Why not create a romance tray for your other half, using some of Chocolate and Loves yumminess, with Chocolate dipped strawberries, a mouth-watering melted choc pot mini fondue and a hot chocolate drink to wash it all down with.
