Organic Fairly Traded Chocolate     
As artisan chocolatiers, we are constantly striving to find the balance between the best quality product, environmental conscientiousness and organic farming. Our cocoa/chocolate comes from organically grown cocoa plantations from South America, the Caribbean and Grenada. 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 from South America. As a result, we are able to ensure that the chocolates that we use are fairly traded, some of it certified by the "Rainforest Alliance". Approximately 60% of our chocolate is organically grown.    
 
 
 
   
Social responsibility and sustainability in cocoa procurement
Ethical trade emphasizes corporate social responsibility, particularly for companies from the Northern Hemisphere trading with partners in the South (suppliers, sub-contractors, or primary material producers located in these countries).
 
Ethical trade aims to uphold minimal social and environmental conditions, which are based on recognized international standards, such as those of the International Labor Organization advocating for employees' rights (minimum wage, freedom of association, etc.); ethical trade also favors social advancement for employees of these businesses. Ethical trade encourages and develops optimal working conditions for producers.
