Our Commitment

Purdys Chocolatier has always been about connecting people with chocolate.

The Flavelle Family remains passionate about giving back to the community who has always shown us incredible love and support. To this day, Purdys continues to be involved and invested in numerous philanthropic projects—both at home in Canada and in our rural cocoa-growing communities.

Our chocolates now create more opportunities for us to support communities.

After so many years of creating joyful moments and memories with our confections, we’ve realized we’ve also created a 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.

At Purdys, we’re dedicated to making ourselves better every single day.

Which is why we began Purple Partnerships, a Purdys initiative where we partner with amazing organizations to support their missions, strengthen their voice, and inspire ourselves and our communities to stand for the same values.
