Seed and Bean
What to buy at Better Food: A wide range of Seed and Bean’s irresistibly colourful chocolate bars.
Based in London, the small team behind Seed and Bean have been producing outstandingly ethical chocolate since 2005. Their flavours range from expertly executed classics, such as Espresso, Mint or Ginger, to unexpected combinations to surprise even the most seasoned cocoa adventurer, including English botanicals such as Lavender, Orange & Thyme or Fennel. Handmade in England, Seed and Bean have a constant eye on every aspect of their supply chains, from fair sourcing of their cocoa to minimising packaging.
Mission and values: Since the beginning, Seed and Bean have been driven by their intention to create the most delicious, most ethical, most sustainable British chocolate on the market, whilst being playful with ingredients and flavour. Working hard to nurture good agricultural and artisanal practices, all their products are organic certified and support Fairtrade farmers, and they have been pioneers of biodegradable packaging.
