Frequently Asked Questions

PRODUCT INFORMATION


We love supporting local organic farmers and do our best to source Australian organic ingredients, however this is not always possible. Our mandate above all is to provide our customers with the best quality certified organic products available. Visit individual products for more information on the origins of ingredients.

We love using couverture chocolate because it is a very high-quality chocolate that contains a higher percentage of cocoa butter than cooking or most eating chocolate. It is made using a traditional Swiss recipe resulting in a more decadent and smooth, premium chocolate. Not only does it taste better, it looks better too!
Chocolate needs to be stored in temperatures between 14 and 20 degrees Celsius. In order to retain the freshness of your chocolate after purchasing, ensure you keep it in a dry, cool, cupboard away from the light and strong smells.
