"Transform your relationship with chocolate, the antiguilt-delicious-meets-nutritious-meets-immunity-doctor-engineered-chocolate"

Chris, Justin, & Michael

 

Behind the Idea

We loved the creamy taste of chocolate and the way it melts in our mouths. We didn't love the after effects—the guilt of eating a whole chocolate bar, the sugar crash and the caffeinated jittery feeling. So, the founders got together to design and engineer the perfect chocolate. Chocolate that makes you feel at ease, chocolate that boosts immunity, chocolate that makes you blissful and leaves you transformed—full of balance.

Behind the Chocolate

No Junk. Organic. Non-GMO. Fair Trade. Gluten Free. Halal. Kosher. No Trans fats. UTZ certified. We looked for the highest quality chocolate in the world and found it in Switzerland. The highest ethical standards for the highest quality taste. ISO 9001 certified chocolate production.

Beyond Fair Trade

Our chocolatier follows a philosophy of "Fair Direct Cacao" and works openly and directly on location with cacao farmers so that they can profit from fair conditions. Due to the consideration taken towards natural resources in the cacao regions, it is possible to conserve these for long-term use so that future generations will continue to prosper and benefit. Fair prices enable cacao farmers to use natural resources sustainably so that they remain preserved for future generations. 

Cacao Principles

  1. Know where cacao beans are grown.
  2. Cultivate contact with the cacao farmers and local partners and visit them regularly.
  3. Stay informed about the working and production conditions in the origin countries.
  4. Pay extensively more than Fair Trade prices for high quality cacao beans.
  5. Commit to ensuring that cacao is both socially acceptable for farmers and their families and is grown in harmony with nature.
  6. Engage long-term to ensure a secure income for future generations of cacao farmers.
  7. During transport and processing in Switzerland, conserve natural resources where- ever possible. New technologies aid in the constant improvement of energy efficiency.
