Our ethics

Our Approach

Treating people, animals and the planet with integrity and respect is at the forefront of all our decisions with the business.

Plastic free

A cornerstone of the business is using plastic free packaging. Everything is paper based and fully recyclable or compostable.

Family run

The secret behind our delicious chocolates is Fiona's mum, Lorna, who does a fabulous job as chief taste tester!

Fairtrade for producers

At Fetcha Chocolates, we believe in paying a fair wage right through our supply chain and are firmly against slave labour and child labour practices. That's why the chocolate we use, and the majority of our raw ingredients, are either UTZ (now part of Rainforest Alliance) or Fairtrade certified.

We might not shout about is as much as Tony's Chololony but rest assured as far as possible (as a small business it is more difficult to control and quantify) we are commited to making slave free chocolates!

Both the Rainforest Alliance and Fairtrade are also founding members of the Global Living Wage Coalition and the Living Income Community of Practice.

100% Vegan Business

Since going vegan in 2017, Fiona made sure when she launched the business that vegan customers would know that they could trust her and the brand to be fully vegan.

It also makes it easy for allergy sufferers to be safe in the knowledge that no milk-containing products will ever be made in the same location as our delicious chocolates.

We have teamed up with Vegan Founded who are the world's first and only certification body that exclusively certifies and supports 100% real vegan businesses.

The Vegan Founded logo represents full transpaency, honesty and trust between our business and you, our customers.

Community

In our local area we frequently donate raffle prizes and make donations to charitable causes. We also donate chocolates to our local foodbank at Christmas and Easter.

Made in the UK

All our own chocolates are handmade in Scotland and all the chocolate we use to make them is manufactured in Devon in England, so rest assured, wherever possible we support UK businesses first.

Charity

Curretnly we are rasing money for the War Paws charity, supporting animal shelters in war torn areas like Ukraine and Afghanistan
