Doisy & Dam chocolate: Ethical, vegan and delicious
These days, there’s an ever-increasing focus on what we can do as individuals to reduce our impact and footprint on the planet – and rightly so.
But we all need a little motivation sometimes and for many of us, the best motivator is a sweet treat.
So when we found out about Doisy and Dam, an ethical chocolate brand that refuses to compromise on social conscience or taste, we jumped at the chance to stock them.
Doisy and Dam’s fabulous range of sweet treats are mostly non-dairy dark chocolate, so they make excellent vegan chocolate gifts or just a wonderful snack to reward yourself.
Ethical chocolate that puts people and planet first
Even when we try to do the right thing, sometimes it can be tricky to find out the origin of our food.
Products might be local – which we’re told is a good thing due to carbon pollution from air transportation – but still unethical. Nightmare.
But at Doisy and Dam it’s simple. The chocolate all comes from one specially chosen supplier in Colombia and the rest of the magic happens in a factory in Kent.
It’s transparent and accountable, as evidenced by Doisy and Dam’s B-Corp Certification, which means that the company’s social and environmental performance is thoroughly vetted.
Doisy and Dam have even visited their South American cocoa supplier, Luker Chocolate, and testify to their partner’s positive work in terms of training local farmers and not-for-profit research facilities.
Chocolate with as few ingredients as possible
Have you ever looked at the ingredients list on the back of your favourite chocolate bar?
If so, the sheer number of ingredients might have confused you.
Not so with Doisy and Dam. On their website, they say that they avoid putting anything in their chocolate that your grandmother wouldn’t recognise: “no additives. No E-numbers. No weird stuff”.
