Meaningful Chocolate

“Our everyday actions – even buying a chocolate bar – are meaningful.”  -Dr. Jane Goodall, world renowned primatologist and environmentalist.

So how can chocolate benefit small-scale cocoa farmers, indigenous wildlife, the environment, and you?  Theo Chocolate has teamed up with two new organizations, the Jane Goodall Institute and the Eastern Congo Initiative, and you can purchase these two delicious bars right here at Global Village!

Here’s what Theo has to say about our newest chocolate: 

janegoodall“The partnership between Theo and Jane Goodall is inspired by “Cocoa Practices,” a ground breaking Theo Chocolate initiative that brings together small scale cocoa farmers, larger producers and non-governmental organizations from the world’s cocoa producing regions. Cocoa Practices is designed to give farmers the tools they need to grow high-quality cocoa beans while conserving indigenous wildlife and other natural resources in the tropical rainforest eco-systems that provide both their livelihoods and their homes. Proceeds from the sale of these chocolate bars will benefit cocoa farmers, promote conservation in the tropical rainforest and directly contribute to the Jane Goodall Institute’s efforts to save chimpanzees, develop community centered conservation efforts and direct youth education programs around the world.”



“The sun is rising in the Democratic Republic of Congo after years of conflict and violence. In Eastern Congo, Theo Chocolate and Eastern Congo Initiative (ECI) have teamed up with Congolese cocoa farmers to make this delicious and crunchy vanilla nib chocolate bar. The cocoa and vanilla used to make this chocolate bar are all grown in Eastern Congo by dedicated organic farmers focused on quality and sustainability. The vanilla, grown in the foothills of the breathtaking Rwenzori Mountains, adds a delicious creaminess in contrast to the roasted crunchy cocoa nibs. Proceeds from this chocolate bar will be donated to ECI to support their work with Congolese farmers in Eastern Congo.”
