Frequently Asked Questions
Does Newman's Own Organics' chocolate liquor contain alcohol?

Does Newman's Own Organics' use slave labor in producing their chocolate?
They have confirmed in writing that the cocoa products they purchase have been produced on farms that treat their workers fairly, and pay them a fair wage. Their suppliers do not and will not support any farms or plantations that mistreat children and adults or engage in "Slave Trade Practices".
I received a pack of Peanut Butter Cups that only had 2 cups instead of 3, why?
As part of their production, the trays are hand packed, bulked off and then feed into a wrapping machine. On a rare occasion, a cup may pop out of the tray just prior to being wrapped causing an empty cavity to be present. In an effort to prevent this from happening they have increased their quality control on this line with additional checks and balances. In addition, they are implementing an additional level of weight checking to validate the increased quality control measures.
I received chocolate with air holes, why?
Because their products are organic it lacks all the emulsifiers that make it smooth out like an ordinary non-organic product; therefore when it settles into the mold, it doesn't "settle out" into all the ridges of that mold with as much evenness as a non organic product. There may be bars with one end slightly thicker than the other because of this settling as well.

The materials below were developed by the USDA National Organic Program in 1994 and serve as a general outline of the definition of Organic as it will be used in the United States.
Organic agriculture is a holistic system with the primary goal of optimizing the health and productivity of interdependent communities of soil life, plants, animals, and people. Management practices are carefully selected with an intent to restore and then maintain ecological harmony on the farm, its surrounding environment and ultimately the whole planetary ecosystem.
The Organic Farm Plan is central to demonstrating progressive improvement of practices and measuring evolution of the management system as a whole towards greater sustainability. In this context, record- keeping is a key management tool for identifying problems and successful adaptations. Management changes should be evaluated in light of the principles described below.
Organic production systems seek to provide food, fiber and herbal products of the highest quality in sufficient quantities.
