Ethical raw chocolate manufacturer Lovechock BV is celebrating 10 years of being Plastic Free’, after making the move to renewable and compostable NatureFlex cellulose films for its packaging.

As well as protecting and preserving the raw chocolate bars, NatureFlex films are produced from sustainable wood pulp harvested from responsibly managed plantations of fast-growing trees. They are certified to both EU (EN13432) and US (ASTM D6400) composting standards.

In addition to industrial composting, which requires specific temperature and moisture conditions, NatureFlex has also reached the TŰV Austria OK Compost Home standard required for backyard composting. The films easily break down in a home compost bin in just eight to 10 weeks.

Lovechock bars carry the The Plastic Free logo after being approved three years ago, and the company said NatureFlex films renewable and compostable accreditations are what led it to switch its packaging back in 2011, claiming to be the first chocolate manufacturer in Europe to have its full raw chocolate range packaged in these sustainable films.

This goes hand-in-hand with Lovechock’s pioneering spirit to lead the change for more ethical and sustainable products.

Franziska Rosario, Lovechock CEO, said; “I am absolutely overjoyed that awareness around plastic pollution has grown so much in the last four years. And that we were able to play our role as pioneers in raising awareness amongst consumers and helping them to change their behaviour towards a more sustainable future​. “
