Premium and ethically sourced chocolate brand, Hey Tiger, is returning to shelves this month through a new partnership with Soulfresh.

Born in 2017, Hey Tiger was founded with the ethos of creating a different kind of chocolate offering, with a single-minded mission to create a better chocolate experience for everyone.

Hey Tiger set out to bring change and to do-good by the cocoa industry, partnering with The Hunger Project to ensure the supply chain is fair and ethical, whilst supporting some of the world’s most vulnerable people. Hey Tiger believes in a fair chocolate industry and the brand works closely with suppliers to ensure there is no mistreatment of workers or forced labour.

Two per cent of each Hey Tiger block sold is given to The Hunger Project and will go towards ‘women’s empowerment’ and ‘entrepreneurship and social development.’ This means every block is helping to create a more equitable global landscape – bringing to life the brand’s do-good mission.

It took time for the do-good chocolate brand to find a home that was aligned to these intrinsic values, but the brand believes it has found that home in Soulfresh.

Didi Lo, Founder and CEO of Soulfresh, said: “We have always looked up to Hey Tiger for its commitment to creating positive change and being a trailblazer of the industry. At Soulfresh our mission is rooted in doing-good, it’s part of our DNA and it is one that we will always remain committed to, so we are thrilled to carry on Hey Tiger’s mission of creating downright delicious chocolate all whilst challenging the broken cacao industry model.

“Soulfresh will carry on the relationship with The Hunger Project and has pledged to continue giving and doing good. Proceeds of each Hey Tiger sale will continue to be donated to ensuring we work together to create change for those living in poverty.

“With Hey Tiger having a new home at Soulfresh we will continue to only use ethically sourced cocoa and protect the Hey Tiger magic. There’s something special that has been created here and we remain devoted to its legacy.”

Original Hey Tiger founder, Cyan Ta’eed said the decision to rehome Hey Tiger with Soulfresh was an easy one given their commitment to what the brand stands for.

“We are beyond excited to announce the return of Hey Tiger, our much loved chocolate brand, and we believe Soulfresh is the perfect home to bring it back. Soulfresh has almost 20 years’ experience within the food industry and I’m so proud they will be guiding the Hey Tiger brand to the next level.”

To celebrate the brand’s new home, a new flavour has been added to the delicious line up. Soul Tiger is a new release recipe and brings to life cocoa cookie crumb and orange dark milk chocolate.

It joins the traditional Hey Tiger range including Best Mates (caramelised popcorn and coconut milk chocolate), Game Changer (hazelnut butter dark chocolate), Summer in the City (peanut butter and pretzel milk chocolate), Glitter Kitten (birthday cake crumb with chocolate), and The Weekend (caramel and waffle crumb dark milk chocolate).

Hey Tiger is currently being rolled out across Australia, stockists include IGA, Ritchies IGA and independent grocers.
