We promote the use of
renewable resources, alternative fuels, and ways to become more self
sufficient while continuing to protect the environment and everything
- Our energy use in making "Olivia Chocolat" is hydro
generated electricity from the Gatineau river which run our cocoa roasters, our Mélangeurs and all our chocolate finishing equipment. -
Our carton packaging paperboard is from a specialized and certified
sustainable source from Sweden. The fibre used in the cartons and
in-store displays meet the sourcing requirements of the Sustainable
Forestry Initiative Program. http://www.sfiprogram.org
Our sustainability initiative revolves and evolves around five simple questions: Do we really need it? What is the product made of? How is it made/packaged? Can it be reused or recycled? Where will this ultimately end up?
are the first Chocolate Maker to successfully institute a program to
provide incentive for stores to reuse our in-store chocolate display
cases instead of discarding them. We are proud and feel it is necessary for use business and environmental sustainability to reuse corrugated cardboard whenever we can.
"All of our Chocolatiers are
committed to environmental sustainability and our goal of zero carbon
footprint in everything we do; we recognize its impact on people and on
the future of communities in which we all live."
