WHAT IS ETHICAL TRADE?

We buy our cacao (the beanlike seed from which chocolate is made) from small family-owned properties. This practice helps sustain the habitats, species and communities in which these farms exist. Our ethical trade criteria ensure farmers humane working conditions and a fair price for their crop.

GROWING SUSTAINABILITY

Sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ cacao farms, our chocolate supports ecosystem conservation and ensures honorable treatment of farm workers. These farms meet rigorous social and environmental standards set by the Sustainable Agricultural Network (SAN). Audits conducted by non-government organizations ensure that the following principles are met:

  • Good working conditions for farmers
  • Ecosystem conservation
  • Water conservation
  • Occupational health and safety
  • Wildlife protection
  • Responsible crop, soil and waste management
