3 Fair Trade Chocolate Brands for Valentine's Day
On Valentine’s Day give chocolate made with love. Sadly the cocoa industry is known for slavery & unethical treatment of workers. With fair trade chocolate we can give treats made with love & certified by a third party verifying that the brand is treating farmers fairly. I've tried chocolates from all three brands below and they are sure to satisfy chocoholics everywhere.
Theo Chocolate is based in Seattle WA and I’ve had the joy of touring their factory a few times. Theo Chocolate is an organic, fair trade bean to bar company which means they are able to fully monitor the ethics of the their supply chain because their process starts with the cocoa bean whereas other company start with chocolate liquor. This fair trade, organic chocolate brand is definitely worth trying out! I’m personally a huge fan of the Raspberry Chocolate bar! Lucky for you we sell Theo chocolate on Give a Damn Goods!
Tony's Chocolonely is on a mission to make, not only their chocolate, but all chocolate slave free. However, this requires the help of chocoholics everywhere! By choosing to purchase Tony's chocolate you are using your consumer vote for good by demanding fair chocolate. Tony’s Chocolonely can easily be ordered online and found in select grocery stores such as Whole Foods.
This family owned company has been producing exquisite fair trade chocolate since the 80s. Frans Chocolate is fair trade certified and they have certain product lines that give back to charitable causes. I’m personally a huge fan of their salted caramel truffles! Frans Chocolate can easily be ordered online or found in select stores such as Whole Foods.
