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/
