About Green & Black's Organic
The rich taste of Green & Black's chocolate comes from the Trinitario beans that they use, taking advantage of Trinitario's full, dynamic flavor characteristics. Cocoa farmers hand harvest the cocoa pods, which contain about 45 individual cocoa beans. To further develop their pronounced cocoa flavor, the farmers have to trigger the fermentation by covering the beans with banana leaves for about five days. After the cocoa beans are fermented to perfection, they get a little tan in the sun and dry out. Then, after a little TLC, the beans are ready to fully realize their destiny inside a bar of Green & Black's.
Green & Black's has always been an organic brand. They believe that using only organic ingredients creates great-tasting chocolate. They also believe that farmers who grow their own crops organically are often more interested in, and concentrate on, the quality and taste of what they grow. They choose varieties and growing methods that ensure they can successfully grow their crops without the use of synthetic chemicals. Green & Black's farmers grow their beans under the shade of the rainforest trees alongside other crops like avocado, pineapple, coffee and bananas; such natural biodiversity helps safeguard their cocoa's freshness, health, and full, dynamic flavor.
