What is Tony's Chocolonely?
Tony's Chocolonely was created when journalist Teun van de Keuken discovered that many chocolate brands still used slavery to produce the chocolate. He also found out that a lot of child labour was present in the production of this chocolate. He knocked on the door of a major sponsor of the film "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". Teun asked this sponsor if they would produce a slave-free chocolate bar. When this was not the case, Teun decided to market his own slave-free chocolate bars in 2005. This immediately proved a huge success and the first stock was sold out in no time.
Why this chocolate with your roses?
Surprose included Tony's Chocolonely in its range because the ideals of the two companies are close to each other. For instance, both companies are very transparent about where their products come from and what exactly they sell. On Surprose's webshop, you can then order sustainable chocolate to go with your sustainable bunch of roses. A great collaboration between two companies that like to do their bit for corporate social responsibility. Want to read more about what Surprose does about sustainability?

Why Tony's Chocolonely at Surprose?
As mentioned, Tony's Chocolonely is special because the company strives for 100% slave-free chocolate. What sets Tony's Chocolonely apart from others is that they pay an extra premium to the farmers. This way, they get paid adequately. The cocoa mass used in Tony's Chocolonely bars is fully traceable back to the farmers in Ghana and Côte d'Ivoire. The company also knows these farmers personally, so they can be sure that no slavery is used here to make the bars. This fits well with Surprose's philosophy. In fact, Surprose also has personal contact with all the growers, to be able to see how these roses can be delivered to you as fresh and as quickly as possible. In addition, we can tell which variety of rose it is, from which grower the rose comes, etc.
