Where do you source your chocolate, and do you believe in social responsibility and sustainability in cocoa procurement?

As artisan chocolatiers, we are constantly striving to source the best quality product with a focus on environmental conscientiousness and organic farming. Our cocoa/chocolate comes from cocoa plantations from South America, Madagascar, Ghana, the Caribbean and Grenada - some of them organically grown and certified. To guarantee consistency of the highest-quality product, we make every effort to build a close relationship with our two chocolate manufacturers in Switzerland and France and their cocoa farmers. As a result, we are able to ensure that the chocolate that we use is fairly traded, with as much product as possible certified by the Rainforest Alliance. We understand ethical trade emphasizes corporate social responsibility, particularly for companies from the Northern Hemisphere trading with partners in the South (suppliers, subcontractors or primary material producers located in these countries). Proper ethical trade aims to uphold minimal social and environmental conditions, based on recognized international standards such as those set down by the International Labor Organization, which advocates for employee rights like minim wage and freedom of association. Ethical trade also favours social advancement for employees of these businesses by encouraging and helping to develop optimal working conditions.
