Margaret River Chocolate Company unveils sustainable new look

The Margaret River Chocolate Company has unveiled a plan to go carbon neutral in four years, while also revealing a new look at its flagship factory.

The award-winning chocolate factory, situated in the heart of the Margaret River wine region, updated the 22-year-old building with native hardwood timber of the area — rough-sawn Western Australian jarrah — which refreshes its look and doubles its thermal resistance and insulating properties.

The Swan Valley factory.

Its new thermally efficient, natural exoskeleton is one of a suite of energy-efficient innovations being proposed by the company to make its entire operations carbon neutral by 2025.

The company’s second factory in the Swan Valley already features a 100 kW solar power installation on its expansive roof. It also introduced two solar-powered biomass water treatment plants that filter, purify and cleanse all of the company’s wastewater in the Swan Valley.
