We are often asked if our chocolate is sourced from sustainable cacao farming operations and are happy to report that yes, our chocolate does come from sustainable sources. As we all have different definitions of 'sustainable' we suggest you read up on their operations should you have concerns or questions.
Callebaut Chocolate is one of our two chocolate suppliers and has quite a deal about its sustainable chocolate operations on its website. Should you have specific questions about their operations, they would be happy to answer any questions!
Valrhona Chocolate is our other chocolate supplier and also offers a great deal of information about its membership with the sustainability-focused Cacao Forest project, and how it works alongside producers, companies, researchers, consumers and NGOs to reinvent the way cocoa is grown.
