Is your cocoa fair trade?Updated 2 years ago

The cocoas we source are not fair trade, but are obtained from SERAP certified cocoa suppliers. SERAP stands for Social and Environmentally Responsible Agricultural Practices, a certification requiring its members to engage in ethical trade practices, with the premiums of this certification going to rural development, preventative health training, education towards the importance of clean drinking water, proper sanitation and good nutrition.

Since 2005, SERAP has provided about US$21.5 million in premiums to grower cooperatives to promote sustainable cocoa cultivation and better living standards for cocoa farmers and their communities.
