Sustainability is an important part of Buttermilk’s ethos and they take a holistic approach. They look at all the impacts of all aspects of production – from biodiversity to workers rights to any waste created.
Here are the key ways they're making our choccy goodies sustainable. So you can indulge guilt-free!
(1) Plastic-Free & Compostable Packaging
All new products (including their vegan and dairy-free goodies) come in plastic-free, compostable cellulose packaging. They're really proud to have found a non-plastic packaging that keeps our treats fresh and tasty!
The packaging is a triple laminate of home compostable material. So you can enjoy your treats knowing you won’t pollute our environment. It can take around 26 weeks to decompose, but even if they do get tossed in the bin, their compostable properties offer environmental advantages that plastic-based packaging doesn’t.
(2) Sustainable Chocolate & Sugar
They've also worked hard to ensure they're sourcing their key ingredients in the most sustainable way possible, without compromising on taste!
Cocoa – They opt to buy all cocoa from a farmer’s union. This means that the farmers determine the rate of chocolate, but also that they understand their local needs best.
Sugar – When it comes to sugar, they purchase all sugar from EU sugarcane. Sugarcane is the best option for us because it supports the healthy biodiversity of the environment.
