Guiding Principles

Fair's Fair

We operate on the principle that cocoa growers and their families deserve access to basic healthcare and education.

Organic Agriculture

Cocoa grown without synthetic chemicals is healthier for the consumer, the grower, and the environment.

Nut Free

Our factory premises and all of our products are strictly nut free.

Quality

We destroy the myth that fairly traded, organic cocoa is inherently inferior.
