This chocolate company know how to do things differently. Not only do Montezuma’s source fairly-traded organic chocolate, their packaging has also won awards because it’s recyclable, compostable and biodegradable.
Montezuma’s was borne out of love, when Helen and Simon met as lawyers. After travelling to South America and camping on a cocoa plantation they return to England inspired. A year later they started Montezuma’s chocolate shop in Brighton, hand making all the bars themselves. Only the finest chocolate is used in their bars. And the cocoa is sourced from plantations that protect the environment and support local livelihoods.
Montezuma’s are a value based company, aware that it is important to think about people and planet. That is why, that in edition to looking after people in their supply chain, they support Chichester-based charity Children on the Edge. This charity helps vulnerable children around the world and is a really worthy cause.
Better Food love Montezuma’s ethics – they’re a company after our own heart!
How local are Montezuma’s?
Just a hop, skip and a jump away from Bristol, Brighton-based Montezuma’s is 164 miles from our Wapping Wharf store. As cocoa only grows in the tropics their ingredients come from much further afield. However they ensure that their social and environmental impact is generative.
