After a year of development, British chocolate manufacturer Conscious Chocolate succeeded in using compostable and recyclable packaging for its (exclusively vegan) chocolate products. The packaging solution of the Conscious Chocolate bar realized with the manufacturer Qualvis is plastic-free, recyclable, biodegradable and home compostable. The cardboard cover is fully recyclable according to standard EN 13430 and compostable according to standard EN 13432. Water-based vegetable inks and varnishes are used for printing. The inner packaging is NatureFlex™ bio-film, which is based on renewable raw materials (pulp from sustainably managed plantations) and certified to standards that demonstrate both suitability for home composting and biodegradability. For shipping its products, Conscious Chocolate also relies on cartons made from 100% recycled paper.
