HERMITAGE, Grenada - Jan. 27, 2015 - PRLog -- New Lebanon, NY, St. Patrick's, Grenada, West Indies - FairTSA, an innovative global Fair Trade standard holder, announces completion of a formal licensing agreement with The Grenada Chocolate Company. Taking three silver medals in the London Academy of Chocolate and rated as one of the very best organic dark chocolate by the German chocolate gourmet web site chclt.net, Grenada Chocolate is one of the finest organic chocolate makers in the world. They are a cocoa  growing and chocolate making cooperative, working together to produce their single origin chocolate from tree to bar, right on the Island of Grenada. Their business model empowers farmers and families in Grenada to earn a living wage for their work. In addition, all their chocolate bars are nut and dairy free.

The late founder Mott Green was deeply inspired to start this company when he discovered that a large percentage of the chocolate produced in the world is dependent on child slave labor, primarily in the Ivory Coast in Africa. He was passionate about creating just the opposite, a chocolate company cooperative and right livelihood.

Apart from their commitment to producing the highest quality organic dark chocolate, their dedicated factory, one of the smallest in the world, is solar powered and they transport their products by boat and bicycle as much as possible, using minimal carbon footprint. http://www.grenadachocolate.com/

An award-winning and moving documentary film "Nothing Like Chocolate" was made about this unique company. Grenada Chocolate is a stellar example of environmental stewardship and just and fair trading practices.  http://nothinglikechocolate.com/

“We are very pleased and proud to be working with a company like Grenada Chocolate, supporting their mission of providing the highest quality organic chocolate, and right livelihood in their chocolate making cooperative,” said Dr. Winfried Fuchshofen, FairTSA Executive Director.  “Their commitment to supporting their local farmers and using minimal carbon footprint is a great fit for our business model.”
