Starting out as a seeds farm in 1989, Seeds of Change now produces a range of organic chocolates, pastas and sauces for the speciality food market.
Seeds of Change began with a mission to make organically grown seeds available to gardeners and farmers, while preserving heirloom seed varieties in danger of being lost.
In 1999, the company decided to bring its credentials to the UK by developing a range of what they called honest food that’s full of taste and flavour and also nutritious for consumers.
Out of this came the Seeds of Change food brand.
Seeds of Change has teamed up with Conservation International to support projects on cocoa sustainability and biodiversity.
This union stems from the company’s concern about the long term effects of intensive farming methods on the planet’s biodiversity.
It has also set aside one percent of its revenue to contribute to conservation initiatives around the world, while ensuring that their ingredients are organic and responsibly grown.
Seeds of Change believes that raw ingredients are essential in making great tasting chocolate.
The company uses Trinitario cocoa beans as the base for all its chocolate, grown in the Dominican Republic on rich volcanic soil, the beans have less of the astringency that comes through as bitterness in dark chocolate.
Seeds of Change believes the sourcing of the right beans has a dramatic impact on how good its products taste.
Seed’s of change range compromises four different flavours including;
Dark Chocolate with Orange & Fig, containing organic Aegean fig pieces and orange oil.
70% Dark Chocolate, made with roasted Trinitario cocoa beans, with a hint of fruit.
Dark Chocolate with Hazelnut & Walnut uses sweet hazelnuts and Persian walnuts.
And Milk Chocolate with Apricot & Cashew features dried Turkish apricots paired with cashews in milk chocolate.
Seeds of Change new flavours have been introduced in two new 30g bars designed to appeal to consumers on-the-go or those looking for individual snacks.
Seeds of Change chocolate has also recently been purchased through: House of Sarunds, Cotswold Fayre, Handmade Speciality Products Ltd and Fordham Fine Foods in addition to other wholesalers.
