Bean and Goose



Bean and Goose



At its heart Bean and Goose works in collaboration with other brands. We enjoy the process of creating products with other Irish producers. We work closely in collaboration with Ireland’s best food producers, designers and other makers to bring different elements to our products. This allows us to create stories, moments and memories with our chocolate.

Design is a very important layer to the Bean and Goose story. We want our chocolate to be a whole food experience and we strive to create both a visually beautiful and wonderfully tasting product. A great experience is always more than the sum of its parts.

The people we work with to tell the Bean and Goose story
Design and Branding – Ahmad and Cian at Designgoat
Photography – Al Higgins
Bespoke products – Makers and Brothers, Industry & Co, Brown Thomas, L Mulligan Whiskey Shop, Mitchell and Son


Illustrator Series

Our illustrator series reintroduces our goose. Irish illustrators have been invited to create their version of the goose in Bean and Goose. We turn their art work into limited edition stickers, postcards and even products. Our fifth illustrator is Denise Nestor, a talented artist and illustrator from Dublin.

The Bean Goose actually exists, Wexford is well known for the over wintering bird population. One of the birds that arrive occasionally and in small numbers is the Bean Goose.

This is why we are called Bean and Goose. It’s a link to Wexford, migration and returning home.
