Uncommon Cacao Transparency Report 2015

Transforming the Cacao Supply Chain

 

We are excited to share with you this easy-reading report from our trading partners at Uncommon Cacao. We are proud to partner with Uncommon Cacao to source our Belize, Dominican Republic, Gutemalan & Haitian cocoa beans through this Direct Trade Network. 

Chocolate starts with the story of people. This report helps tell that story in terms of social, economic and environmental impacts on the lives of the real, hard-working smallholder farmer families that produce the wonderful cacao that we are privileged to turn into chocolate for you. We hope you find this report enlightening as well as thought-provoking.
