I came across this organic chocolate at a little store in our area, and I was so impressed with (1… the taste! Dreamy, silky chocolate that melts in your mouth!! And (2… the company’s life goals — that I had to share it with all of you. The company is Terra Nostra Organic, and their website is http://www.terranostrachocolate.com. They believe in giving back to the community, using an ideal called “Equi Trade,” which is a form of social giving, as I have read from their site.
This is truly chocolate with heart.
The following is from their website FAQ’s, and below that, from their profile (both are linked, just click to go there):
I love that!
This from their profile:
Terra Nostra chocolates currently outsell all other organic chocolate in the United States. Karlo is a no-nonsense entrepreneur and dedicated chocolatier. He is also an active member of the global chocolate community through a unique form of social giving called Equi-Trade (now called Equal Trade Alliance). Equal Trade was developed and nurtured to help those growers in countries where fairness is sometimes forgotten. With the increased exposure to child labor paired with the birth of Karlo’s children, is what inspired the Equal Trade initiative. The parent company provides funding for Equal Trade. This funding will be through economic growth projects throughout the world. These projects are in areas where Terra Nostra’s raw materials are sourced and in the regions where Terra Nostra’s chocolate creations are consumed and enjoyed.
