Our Commitments

Bringing people together with chocolate.

The Flavelle Family and Purdys have always been passionate about giving back and investing in numerous philanthropic projects, and that passion continues to this day.

Creating opportunities to support more communities.

After generations of creating joyful memories with our confections, we realised we've also created a new platform for communities to be seen, heard and supported. A platform that can bring more people together and create even more joy to people who need it.

Making ourselves better every day.
