PLACE: The meaning of Origin
The heart of Theo resides in the cocoa growing regions of the world, which they lovingly refer to as "origin." Theo buys their cacao direct from farmers and grower cooperatives. Building long -term business partnerships benefits farmers financially and technologically as they work together to perfect the art of growing quality cocoa beans. Economic stability keeps children in school, improves nutrition, and allows farmers to invest in equipment and land.
PEOPLE: The meaning of Fair Trade
Theo's founding principle is that the finest artisan chocolate in the world can (and should) be produced in an entirely ethical, sustainable fashion. Theo believes that every gold medal they win is a testament to both their commitment to excellence and to the people and families who grow and harvest their cacao. The social benefits of Fair Trade are far reaching. The child who gets adequate nutrition and access to healthcare and education today also gains access to a world of opportunities. Fair Trade enables farmers to take their livelihoods to the next level in sophistication, blending the benefits of modern techniques with artisanal practices, while participating in greater social change through the democratic Fair Trade cooperative organization.
PLANET: The meaning of Organic
Focus on sustainable growing practices benefits both our fragile environmental ecosystem and all of the people inhabiting our planet. Integrated pest management protects farmers and the environment from damaging pesticides. Shade grown cacao allows for biodiversity and much needed forest habitat for many species such as migratory birds. Reforestation helps offset worldwide air pollution and has a positive impact on global warming.
THEO: The meaning of Bean-to-Bar
Theo's small batch chocolate production is truly an art form. They take great time and care to steward their cocoa beans through the entire manufacturing process, add only the finest, sustainably produced ingredients, and are proud to offer chocolate they can guarantee is equal parts ethical and delicious!
