Welcome to our ethical business. Simply put, ethical to us means treating people, animals and the planet with kindness and respect. This is the driving principle behind our business and influences the products we make, the ingredients we use, the relationships with our customers and suppliers, the packaging we use and the many choices we make in the day to day running of our business.
