Working towards a better tomorrow

Sustainability is an integral aspect of our business. Every bar starts with a single bean and we go to the most threatened ecological and biologically diverse region of Columbia to bring you the most sustainable, luxurious, great-tasting 'Farmer to Bar' chocolate.

Our journey toward Sustainable Chocolate...


 Guilt Free Indulgence

At GNAW, we oversee every stage of the chocolate-making process: from the selection of the cocoa bean suppliers to the production and finishing of products. We understand that to be a truly sustainable chocolate brand it is essential we are transparent with our customers from 'Farmer to Bar'. 

As a brand inspired by squirrels, and their love of the great outdoors, being a climate-positive company is important to us and we are committed to the journey of putting people and the planet first while making simple delicious chocolate along the way!


Cocoa with conscience

Over the years, cocoa farming has led to mass deforestation, with farmers often clearing forests to plant new cocoa trees rather than reusing the same land. In a bid to create climate-positive chocolate our plan is to work with our Columbia cocoa suppliers to build a more sustainable supply chain for cocoa. 

We are working with farmers and their communities through education projects that encourage new farming methods for increased biodiversity of the land and the use of agroforestry. By supporting the full 'Farmer to Bar' journey, we are ensuring the long-term viability and resilience of the cocoa-growing while preserving endangered habitats, protecting wildlife, and mitigating the impact on the climate.


All the taste without the waste

Traditional confectionery packaging often contributes to the growing problem of plastic waste, which takes hundreds of years to decompose and negatively impacts the environment.

We take pride in the fact that 99% of our products are beautifully hand-wrapped without plastic. Our packaging is either home-compostable or kerbside recyclable and uses FSC/PEFC certified materials which are printed on using vegetable-based inks. Our 100g bars are wrapped with 100% wood pulp Natureflex foil, which is the world’s first certified garden compostable foil. Our product packaging significantly reduces the amount of non-biodegradable waste generated, which is a significant step towards a greener future. By using our packaging, you can be confident that you are contributing to the overall well-being of the planet. We, as squirrels, care about the natural world, and we hope you do too.


Powering the future of Chocolate

In 2022, we made a significant step towards sustainability by incorporating renewable energy sources into our manufacturing processes. As a result, all of our products are now produced using 100% clean energy from nature. Our rooftops are now equipped with solar panels that can generate over 130,000kWh annually. 

We are continuously evaluating and improving our processes to ensure that they are as energy-efficient as possible, aiming to reduce our reliance on non-renewable energy sources for the foreseeable future.
