Good People. Good Chocolate. A Better World.
We believe in the balance between profits and purpose. We are committed to carefully considering the impact of our decisions on our team, partners, customers, community and environment. We value tradition and we pledge to keep it part of our future.
The way we see it, great people making great chocolate is one way of creating a better world. Because a healthier planet starts with mindful decisions, we promise to...
Keep Food Clean
Non-GMO ingredients & Certified Organic Products
All ingredients in our facility are organic and non-GMO, and our cocoa is sourced from Rainforest Alliance certified farms. By eliminating the use of synthetic pesticides and artificial fertilizers through organic farming, we enhance biodiversity, improve soil quality, and reduce water pollution. We also get to reap the benefits of fresher, more flavorful ingredients.
Certified Gluten-Free & Kosher
So that everyone can enjoy our chocolates worry-free, we always mark our allergens clearly and keep our facility free from gluten, dairy, and corn. We are certified kosher by EarthKosher, meaning we follow the Jewish dietary framework for food preparation, processing, and consumption. This guarantees that our chocolates are carefully inspected during each step of production until it leaves our factory.
Conduct Fair Business Practices
Rainforest Alliance Certified Cocoa
We want to contribute to a better world for people and nature. That is why we source our cocoa responsibly by buying from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms. Certified farms are better and safer places to live and work, where human rights must be respected. Farmers receive training which addresses issues like child labor and promotes gender equality and non-discrimination. The Rainforest Alliance also works to achieve better livelihoods for farmers and workers, for example, by encouraging farmers to use good agricultural practices that help improve crop yields and reduce costs.

Positive Work Environment
Simply, we believe that happy people make great chocolate. It is a priority to pay every team member above market wages, ensure best practices for worker safety and foster growth by actively encouraging their training, education and development. We are proud to be majority female-owned, led and operated and we know how important it is for each of our employees to feel valued.
Protect the Planet
Raising animals for food requires massive amounts of land, food, energy and water. By keeping our chocolates free of animal products, we lessen the burden on the environment and show respect to animals and our Earth. Our chocolates contain no animal ingredients such as dairy, eggs, or gelatin and our sugar is bone char-free.
We vow to be environmentally responsible and to give back more than we take. We pledge to be a beyond carbon neutral company by offsetting double our carbon footprint and to continuously optimize our packaging to follow a strategic sustainability cycle. To support the ending of deforestation, we only buy cocoa from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms. These farms follow more sustainable land management practices to protect forests, biodiversity, and natural resources. To learn more about the Rainforest Alliance, visit www.rainforest-alliance.org.
