Our passion is to make the world a better place through the
mouth-watering magic of chocolate.
By living out these values, we endeavour to make a difference:
Our Colombian partnership
We jumped at the opportunity to partner with the ASOPECA co-operative and have helped the farmers buy a piece of land.
So every time one of us enjoys a Choc affair moment or treats a loved one to a Choc affair gift, we’re investing in the future of a community in Colombia. What more excuse do we need to indulge our passion for chocolate?!
Now, we help facilitate the sponsorership of over 30 children in the Kumi township in North Eastern Uganda. As well as each young person being taught to read and write, the programme helps them to see where their strengths are in order to facilitate a holistic approach to their education plan.
Several of the older children have completed their skills training and are now either working or seeking employment. There is now a recent project started to create a feeding programme for the children who live on the streets, ensuring they can enjoy a hot meal once a day, with access to a trained social worker, medical care and potential skills training
The aim is to offer the opportunity to develop real work life skills that will help individuals overcome the barriers to employment.
Over the years we have operated this policy on an informal basis, and have given employment opportunities to young offenders, young people leaving care and probation service users. This year we have sought to adopt a more formalised and intentional policy.
As a small British company, we are proud of our heritage. We support other British businesses by sourcing our packaging and ingredients within the UK wherever possible and by doing all we can to contribute to our local economy
