Bees are essential for our environment, which is why we are very proudly sponsoring a bee hive. Our aim is to protect the bees, not to produce honey. Sadly the opposite is too often seen. Bees are largely exploited for their honey, which they work all their lives to make. They are given sugar solution as a replacement which is not nearly as nutricious - or delicious.
We've collaborated with Rosie Dore, an illustrator and bee keeper, to produce our Rose 65% Dark chocolate, from which part of the profit goes to our bee hive. No honey is taken from it and we only give sugar solution or fondant as an extra to the bees to help them survive.
