Seed & Bean Re-Awarded Ethical Accreditation by The Good Shopping Guide | Jun 19, 2017 | Ethical Accreditation, Ethical Shopping Blog | 0 comments In our new chocolate rankings based on our latest independent research, Seed & Bean ranked top on the ethical index with a perfect 100 ECI. This means that out of the 27 brands covered in our latest research, Seed & Bean is the only to be awarded a perfect ethical rating. Continuing to show why it is a truly ethical leader within the chocolate sector, Seed & Bean has followed up this terrific result by successfully re-attaining Ethical Accreditation status by Ethical Company Organisation. Founded in June 2005 with the idea to create an ethical range of confectionery, the focus from the beginning was on using organic ingredients, small-scale suppliers and being brave with flavours rarely tasted in confectionery. Certified 100% organic, all Seed and Bean products are ethically sourced with the brand receiving top recommendation by The Good Shopping Guide. Along with the development of sustainable inner wrappers for their confectionery products, made from renewable eucalyptus wood pulp and certified compostable, Seed & Bean have also recently launched 2 new bars: 100% and 80% Dark Chocolate – both made with organic cacao beans grown by farmer families in Ecuador. Seed & Bean works closely with local farmer families, paying them above market price for their highest quality cacao beans, in order to assure that they receive their deserved share of the entire farmer to consumer process.
