Independent: ‘Chocolader’s innovative packaging is the best we’ve seen, and we also loved it’s ingenious use of flavour.’
GQ: ‘A chocolate brand that prides itself on its avoidance of shortcuts, preservatives, bulking agents, substitutions and articial shenanigans, Chocolarder's 2020 Easter egg output is as guilt-free as it gets.’
The Observer: ‘Probably the most eco-friendly of them all, with plastic-free packaging. But what is worthiness without deliciousness? Nothing.’
Ethical beekeeper Matt Pitt cares for his colonies of Cornish black bees by using sustainable methods that are stress and chemical free for the good health of his fuzzy compatriots. He supplies Chocolader with fresh Cornish heather honey from which we make our own honeycomb, which delivers deep, heavy honey flavours and a pleasing crunch alongside our creamy milk chocolate.
In the springtime the Cornish hedgerows hum with the sound of bees doing their good work, so we looked for a Cornish beekeeper who could supply us with some delicious local honey from which to make honeycomb used in this egg. Meeting Matt Pitt was a revelation to Chocolader. Not only could he readily supply the goods, he also came with an abundance of bee expertise and knowledge that turned our foodie interest into bee-vangelical fervour. Matt keeps Cornish Black Bees, and is working hard to support and encourage their colonies to repopulate Cornwall. This breed of honeybee is naturally resilient to British climate, but numbers have significantly declined, largely due to human interference. It’s estimated that there are now half the number of bees in the UK that were here just 20 years ago. Threats include non-traditional beekeeping methods and hive transportation that stress the colonies, the importation of non-native bees along with pests and diseases, and the loss of most of our wildflower meadows.
