recycled plastic

In order to reduce our impact on the environment, we must constantly innovate and find materials that are environmentally friendly, while meeting the strict safety standards imposed by the food industry. A real challenge!

Due to food safety regulations you may encounter plastic in some of our packaging. Important to know is that, we only use recycled PET plastic. But what is the difference between this and simple plastic?

rPET stands for 'recycled polyethylene terephthalate'. The advantage of this material is that it can be recycled and therefore reused over and over again. The manufactering of rPET packaging requires less energy and generates way less emissions than using non-recycled plastic. This process is therefore ideal to tend to a circular economy.

In 1915, Louise Agostini, Jean Neuhaus Jr.’s wife, invented the very first classic ballotin to protect our delicate Neuhaus pralines. In order to protect our planet we have now created a simplified, eco-friendly alternative.

The colour indicates the ripeness of the cacao bean. It goes from yellow to violet and is ready to be harvested when it turns red.  
A cacao tree can live over 200 years, but only produces quality cacao beans for about 25 years. Each year a tree will produce approximately 40 pods.
It takes about 6 cacao beans to produce the chocolate needed to cover the handcrafted nougatine.   
Since we have a strong engagement towards sustainability, we remelt all of our statues, to be able to reuse the chocolate. Nothing goes to waste!
