Does sustainable chocolate taste better?

We think it does, and maybe it feels better too. Buying chocolates made with Rainforest Alliance Certified™ cocoa and cocoa butter helps drive positive change in West Africa, where almost 70% of the world’s cocoa supply is grown by farmers, mostly women, who face many labour, economic, and environmental challenges.

Our position on cocoa sustainability

We are committed to sourcing. Our proprietary couverture chocolate is made using Rainforest Alliance Certified™ cocoa and cocoa butter, both of which are fully traceable. Other chocolate companies may say on their labels that their chocolate is made using sustainable cocoa, but what about the cocoa butter? What greater good is really being served when only a portion of the cocoa ingredients are sustainably sourced? 

We’ve compiled the most-asked questions about cocoa sustainability in our FAQs page. If you have any questions or want a deeper conversation, please contact us.
