Sourcing details

The Chocolate in our Chunky Buttons is very special. The organic sugar comes from cooperatives in Paraguay and Belize. Organic Cacao beans are sourced from cooperatives in the Dominican Republic, Peru, Panama and Ecuador. The chocolate is blended in Switzerland. Although the buttons are made from organic chocolate they are not certified organic on the bags.
 
The chocolate from our buttons comes from the Dominican Foundation of Organic Producers. In the year 2,000 the Dominican Foundation had 84 members. Today it has more than 1000 organised in to small farmer cooperatives in the main production areas.

In recent years The Dominican Foundation has invested the Fair Trade premium into the following projects:
  • Renovation of cocoa trees in the farms
  • Introduction and distribution of new plant material to the farmers
  • Community projects (Building of wells and improvements of roads)
  • Strengthening of the technical and management capacities
To sustain the farmers we work with partners who commit to:
  • purchase the entire crop of the Dominican Foundation and paying a bonus price for organic and Fair trade quality
  • Pre-financing the production and the harvest costs
  • Financing the organic certification
  • Providing training and advice on agricultural and social topics through a team of highly motivated agronomists
  • Contributing to strengthen farmers organizations
  • Providing high quality crafted cocoa seedlings at cost price
