Arna Falco products are handmade by a small company called Tiger & Bean. Tiger & Bean was started by a confectionery loving, kitchen-experimenting, gluten-free foodie, who spend two years experimenting with tiger nut recipes and tinkering with vintage chocolate & toffee making machines.
From our busy little factory in Valencia, Spain, we now make a range of delicious toffee, chocolate and cocoa based products that incorporate tiger nut for a greater depth of flavour and added functional benefit.
Our goal is simple, to wake the world up to the delicious combination of tiger nut and chocolate, and other adventurous lesser known Mediterranean flavours.
Social & Environmental Impact
But flavour alone is not enough, we believe that small businesses should play a vital role in helping to shape a fairer and more sustainable society.
We are trying to do what we can to push the boundaries, by building long-term social and environmental commitments into the core of our business.
Our fundamental belief is that the uplifting delight of a delicious treat is best shared with the good feelings of a fairer society and a more sustainable planet.
As a company, we are aspiring to B-Corp Certification and currently have the B-Lab recognised status of B-Corp Certification pending.
As such we aim to use our business as a force for good through our five part mission, which is to:
Add value to raw tiger nut through innovation and the development of everyday treats that incorporate only natural ingredients.
Manufacture, distribute and sell delicious tiger nut based food and drink, with a commitment to upholding quality and food safety.
Expanding opportunities for the professional and personal development of our staff.
Actively recognise, and where possible monitor, the impact that our business has on the environment whilst periodically assessing and adopting new measures that help mitigate the negative environmental impact of our operations, with a specific emphasis on C02 reduction, water protection and sustainable waste management.
Identify engaging ways to make positive societal contributions, with a specific emphasis on supporting the livelihoods of the smallholder farmers within our Spanish and West African supply chains.
