» Looks like we’ll be buying up even more Endangered Species Chocolate
bars on our next Whole Foods run. The locally based company recently announced that it is America’s first chocolate brand made with fully traceable cocoa from West Africa. Endangered Species Chocolate’s cocoa is grown by West African farmers who abide by the highest standards in order to protect workers’ rights and the environment. According to the press release, “When a customer purchases ESC’s Fairtrade certified bars, West African farmers earn a fair price and an additional Fairtrade social premium to invest in business and community projects such as improving education and healthcare, protecting their environment and improving their economic well-being.”
