What is Fair Trade chocolate?

A Fair trade chocolate label guarantees consumers that the farmers who grow the cocoa beans we use in our chocolate are getting paid a fair price. It also means that they are following good agricultural practices and are investing in their farms and communities. Under Fair trade, farmers can increase their incomes and gain access to better education and healthcare for their families. All of our Dark Chocolate flavors are certified by the Fair Trade USA organization. To learn more, please visit their website. www.fairtradeusa.org

What does fair trade cacao mean?

The “percent cacao” refers to the percentage of cocoa solids in a product. Cocoa solids are all of the ingredients from a cocoa bean. Chocolate that has a higher cacao percentage has more cocoa solids and cocoa butter in it than others, which means the chocolate will be darker and more strongly flavored since there is less room for sugar and other flavorings in the product.

What does Non-GMO mean?

GMO, or genetically modified organisms, is the manipulation of an organism’s genetic material. This manipulation involves merging DNA from different species, which creates unstable combinations of plant and animal genes that do not occur in nature. All of our Dark Chocolate flavors are verified by the non-GMO Project. These verified barkTHINS® flavors are produced in compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard, which means that ongoing testing of all GMO risk ingredients, facility inspections and an annual audit take place to ensure that the company is meeting the highest possible standards for GMO avoidance.
