- How does your shipping work?
We’re fortunate that our chocolate bars fit into letter mail. This means it only costs $3 to ship anywhere in Canada and $6 to the USA.
We give you free shipping for every bar purchase after the first in an order.
Products that are bigger than bars go small parcel mail for $13 (US and Canada). Same principle as the bars – we cover the shipping for every item after the first.
We cap shipping at $13 so that you won’t have to pay for additional items in your order.
The bigger the order – the more you save!
International – We just go with a flat rate of $25 CAD – actual shipping costs vary widely – but our thought processes is that if you want our chocolate to go over seas then we want you to have it at a reasonable price.
-Alternative Option- Scheduled Local Pickup is available for anyone who would like to arrange a time to meet. We will email you to coordinate.
- Is your packaging printed on eco friendly paper?
We use classic laid papers which are:
- FSC Certified, ensuring responsible forestry
- Geen-e Certified, made using 100% renewable green electricity
- Green Seal Certified, using 30% post consumer fibers
- Carbon neutral
- Chlorine free
We don’t list any of this on our packaging because we don’t want to distract from what really matters; the chocolate.
Using eco-friendly paper doesn’t improve the quality of the chocolate but it does represent our brand; simple and natural.
- Do you have organic chocolate?
Some of our chocolate is certified organic, however, we strip the organic labels.
Cacao is not an industrial grown crop. Most of the world’s cacao is farmed by smallholder farmers (average of 3 hectares). For the most part these farmers cannot afford pesticides or other chemicals. There are tons of challenging facing cacao cultivation, none of which are addressed with being designated organic.
To create an even playing field we would prefer if you did not use organic certification as a quality criteria for chocolate.
