Responsibly sourced food tastes better, especially chocolate. After all, chocolate depends on two key ingredients with checkered histories: cocoa and sugar.
Workers deserve fair wages.
Farming practices should be sustainable and environmentally sound.
Certifications are good, but they're not the whole story.
At WellFound, we only buy cocoa beans and sugar that live up to these beliefs. Sure, some of our ingredients are certified Organic. But other ingredients might be direct trade (not a certification), meaning that we know exactly where they come from and approve of the practices used.
Responsibility also means that we are always trying to improve. As WellFound grows, we hope to have a meaningful impact on the cocoa trade and in our community. If you have suggestions or would like to help, drop us a line!
