AT SIMPLY CHOCOLATE, THE SUN IS OUR BEST FRIEND
Normally, the sun is one of chocolate's worst enemies, as both sunlight and the heat from the rays destroy the chocolate. But at Simply Chocolate, the two are actually best friends, as we have had our very own solar system installed on our roof. This makes us 100% self-sufficient in energy when the sun shines.
Sun rays are necessary for cocoa plants to grow, and now they are also necessary for us to produce our chocolate without emitting CO2. A healthy climate is essential for us to continue growing excellent cocoa beans, and it is natural for us to identify ways to make our production more sustainable.
SMALL DETAILS WITH BIG ENVIRONMENTAL SIGNIFICANCE
Being a climate-friendly chocolate factory is also about remembering the little things, as they collectively make a huge difference to the environment. At Simply Chocolate, we took a tour of our facilities and identified the areas where we could improve to minimize our negative environmental impact. For example, we have intelligent LED lighting that adapts to daylight and switches off automatically, we have optimized our energy consumption in the production facilities and we pay attention to our waste sorting. And we continue to work on becoming more sustainable, because no one can do everything, but everyone can do something.
