The Chocolate Tree
Organic food (Environment)
The Chocolate Tree are artisan organic chocolatiers using only the finest natural ingredients. Based in East Lothian and Edinburgh, they’re building a bean-to-bar chocolate factory to grind their own cacao beans, giving them full control over the chocolate and more transparency for their customers – to the point that they’ll be able to say which farmer grew the beans.
Apart from being environmentally friendly, Organic food doesn't use hydrogenated fats and controversial additives including aspartame, tartrazine, MSG, leading to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Lending in this sector include food shops, butchers and restaurants.
