Sustainability

 

Nobody really needs biscuits. But desire is something different. We try & eat less, but better. We like to think our biscuits look better, taste better, but we also wanted them to “do better”. We focus on two areas – sustainable chocolate & more sustainable packaging.

 

Sustainable Chocolate

 

All our chocolate is accredited by CUOCO Horizons. What they don’t know about chocolate is really not worth knowing. Their aim is to improve the lives of cocoa farmers & their communities, through the promotional of sustainable entrepreneurial farming, improved productivity & community development, which protect nature & children. This is something we support. For more information check cocoahorizons.org

Sustainable Packaging. We try & balance our drive to minimise our environmental impact, with the need to protect your biscuits, give them the shelf life that works for you & obviously ensure food safety. The packaging we use, by weight, is broadly 70% card, 26% plastic trays & 4% plastic film.

 

  • Card: we use a lot of card. Like most, ours is 100% recyclable. Unlike most, all of ours is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) accredited. FSC is the leading global organisation that promotes sustainable forest management. We are proud to work in partnership with them.
  • Plastic Trays: We are trying to reduce the amount of plastic we use & eventually not use any. In the meantime all our plastic trays are made from 100% recyclable plastic & at least 70% made from recycled plastic. Heading towards a more circular economy.
  • Film: Happily film only makes up 4% of our total packaging & is vital for food safety & shelf life. Sadly, it is not easily recyclable. We are working on it.
  • Please help us minimise our shared environmental impact by properly recycling our card & plastic trays.

CUOCO is not your average biscuit maker.

We were born to be different.

With our founder and creative director an award-winning chef, we push the boundaries in everything we do, from superb ingredients to original recipes. We’re taste makers, not biscuit bakers and our drive to be better is a passion we put into everything we create.
