Fair Trade Month sponsor, Green & Black’s contributes a guest blog and shares their philosophy of creating quality products in balance with doing good for people and the planet.
Green & Black’s Organic Chocolate  is committed to inspiring taste across the country. From our Madagascan vanilla and crispy caramelized organic peanuts to unbleached Sicilian almonds, we use the finest ingredients to create each chocolate bar in hopes that we may inspire palates.
But it’s our hope that our Fair Trade Certified™ chocolate will also inspire consumers to make responsible purchases. Green & Black’s has mastered the combination of two worlds where luxury and indulgence meet ethical and sustainable production. As a global, organic and Fair Trade Certified chocolate brand, we firmly believe that a life well lived is always about balance – respecting the earth and its people while indulging in the best that life has to offer.
Since Green & Black’s founding in 1991, we have invested in projects to benefit the farmers who supply our cocoa and last January we gained formal Fair Trade certification. We pledge to be a company and brand that not only creates organic chocolate that is respectful of our physical environment, but one that is also mindful of our social environment, specifically to the farmers who produce our cocoa beans. From Belize to the Dominican Republic, our pledge to Fair Trade practices has ensured security to our farmers, which has helped them to improve their quality of life, provide a better education for their families, and offer stability to the local community.
Be inspired through taste and through knowing that every Fair Trade Certified purchase you make matters to someone. Today, you can enjoy our full line of 13 different chocolate bars (from Dark 70% to Peanut & Sea Salt or Espresso), knowing that you’re giving back to the farming communities. We recently added a new product to our Fair Trade Certified family that is great for gift giving or even to treat yourself. The Green & Black’s Classic Collection includes a delectable combination of 12 miniature bars of dark and milk chocolate, offering six flavors – Milk, Toffee, Almond, Dark 70%, Ginger and Cherry. From the cocoa beans to the roasted almonds, all of our bars are made from high-quality, fair trade, organic ingredients.
