It’s no wonder that the Grenada Chocolate Company has won international acclaim — it’s delicious, fair, eco-friendly and passionate — an honest product amidst a market of refined Mars and Hershey bars.
Today, the partners own 150 acres of organic cocoa farms, a cocoa fermentry located one mile from their little factory, and an army of solar-electrically powered antique machines. (In the early 1900′s, quality had precedence over quantity in chocolate-making.) The company is a rarity among a monopolized world of mega “sweets” conglomerates, producing small batches of dark chocolate infused with raw organic sugar and whole organic vanilla beans grown biodynamically in Costa Rica.
“The original impetus and principle of our cooperative company is to revolutionize the cocoa-chocolate system that typically keeps cocoa production separate from chocolate-making and therefore takes advantage of cocoa farmers. We believe that the cocoa farmers should benefit as much as the chocolate-makers” — Grenada Chocolate Company.
