our Cocoa Story We know what it takes to grow the rare and vintage cocoa that features in our Purist range – because we’re doing exactly that at the historic Rabot Estate on the island of Saint Lucia. The precious cocoa we grow there is of a rare Criollo-rich Trinitario variety and brimming with character, which is further enhanced by ideal growing conditions. But we’re not just growing our own cocoa, we’re also helping to rejuvenate cocoa farming across the island and help reverse a 50-year decline. The Island Growers chocolates in our Purist range are made with cocoa from over 100 Saint Lucian growers, who are all part of our Engaged Ethics programme. It provides technical help and know-how, high quality seedlings and, crucially, a guarantee to buy their entire crop at prices above the world rate. Find out more about our Engaged Ethics programme in Saint Lucia and Ghana at The Tote Bag Inspired by rugged cocoa bean sacks, it’s strong, stylish and made from lined hessian – perfect as a beach bag, the weekly shop, picnics, trips and more.
