Our helping hand given to the planet

Preserving the land and its people to enjoy sustainable chocolate is one of Pierre Marcolini's commitments. Fair remuneration for the planters, an eco-ethical charter, a constantly reduced carbon footprint...
Many small gestures are undertaken to limit the carbon footprint of our activity as soon as we can.

#1 Our product packaging

We avoid plastic whenever possible by eliminating it if it is not essential or by replacing it with a recyclable product.

#2 Our shopping bags

All our shopping bags are eco-responsible, 100% biodegradable and recyclable thanks to:

  • – FSC* certification
  • – the manufacture entirely made out of cellulose
  • – usage of natural inks
  • – usage of water-based glue

* The FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) label certifies sustainable forest management, according to strict social, environmental and economic criteria.

#3 Our e-commerce shipping boxes

Our e-commerce shipping boxes are:

  • – Are FSC* certified
  • – Made of recycled cardboard
  • – Are 100% recyclable
  • – Colored with natural ink

The flakes that protect your chocolate boxes during transport come from a renewable, 100% natural, and biodegradable resource.

Indeed, these :

  • – are made from organic corn starch
  • – dissolve in water. You can therefore put them in your toilet or in compost without any risk, neither for you, nor for the water table

* The FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) label certifies sustainable forest management, according to strict social, environmental and economic criteria.

#4 Our energy consumption

Being energy self-sufficient using renewable solar energy is on the way!

  • – 1000m² of solar panels have been installed on the roof of our Brussels chocolate workshop
  • – We have already reduced our CO² production by 37 tons/year

Our Creations

Incessantly reworked and updated, the Maison recipes – ganaches, pralines, confectionary – are handmade according to tradition.
