Yes it is! All of our cocoa is ethically sourced in accordance with a number of different bodies, and they are:

The Rainforest Alliance -

UTZ (now part of the Rainforest Alliance) -

RSPO (sustainable sourcing of palm oil) -

All our orders are delivered requiring a signature on delivery, this is to ensure your chocolates are not left unattended at your front door, with the risk of being exposed to the elements or being stolen.

If you wish to give authority to leave, please contact us directly after placing your order.If your order cannot be successfully delivered, they will be taken to your nearest Australia Post Office for collection.

In cases where the courier delivers the chocolates to your local post office, we are not responsible for the duration the chocolates spend at the post office.

We recommend prompt collection to maintain the quality of our products and to prevent them being returned to sender due to an unsuccessful collection.

You can track the location of your chocolates by following the tracking information sent to your nominated email address after purchasing.

This will inform you of which Post Office your chocolates are to be collected from. If you don't have a collection slip from AusPost, simply present a form of ID with your residential address and they will assist with your collection.

We recommend the pantry at room temperature, ideally 18 degrees celsius.

The best way to store chocolate is in a cool, dark place and out of the way of any direct sunlight.

Try to avoid any strong odours nearby, also. Chocolate is quite good at absorbing flavours from any strong odours that are close by and this can compromise the flavour of the chocolate.

At the moment we are not taking phone orders, all purchases must be made via our online store at

We cannot exchange or refund goods due to the nature of chocolate.

We will happily refund items that are missing, damaged or that are incorrect. Your refund will
be processed back to the same payment method that you completed the purchase with. 

When packing and shipping all orders, we’ve got a constant eye on the weather, for both our local city as well as where the package will be sent. If we believe your products are at risk of being heat affected during transport, we will include a reusable ice-pack into the shipper to keep everything nice and cool, this is at no extra cost to the customer. 

We strongly advise selecting express shipping during the warmer months of the year. 

Given how sensitive chocolate is to heat, we simply cannot guarantee the perfect arrival of your chocolates during warm weather.

(The white spots that can appear on the surface)

When we see chocolate that has small white spots, that’s technically known as bloom. There are two types of bloom; sugar bloom and fat bloom - both have a very similar appearance.

There are multiple reasons for blooming to occur, but most commonly it is due to the chocolate being exposed to warm temperatures - this is why storing chocolate appropriately is very important!

Chocolate bloom is 100% edible. It’s simply either sugar or fat that has become unstable and risen to the surface of the chocolate. In severe cases it can affect the eating experience of the chocolate as it can alter the texture and mouthfeel. 

If by any chance you have received your order and it appears to be affected by bloom, please contact us at so we can investigate the cause. 

AusPost will return your parcel to sender (Coated Australia) in the event of:

- The customer entering the wrong delivery address

- The customer not collecting the chocolates within 14 days from the local post office.

Coated Australia is not responsible for either of these events. If a redelivery is required, the customer will be issued with an additional shipping charge to cover the extra freight costs.
