Where does the chocolate come from?

Rococo takes the view that the only way to be sure that we are producing a product with no hint of exploitation is to know the provenance of at least all the chocolate and confectionery that is produced in house. With this in mind we source some of our chocolate couverture from Grenada, strengthening our ties with the Caribbean island of Grenada and the Grenada Chocolate Company, which produces organic chocolate, ensures a good price for the farmers and a good wage for their labourers. In backing of our belief in above market wage for farmers and labourers, we recently jointly bought a small cocoa plantation in Grenada on behalf of the Organic Cocoa Regeneration Project, to be managed by and provide raw cocoa for the Grenada Chocolate Company. You can read more about our relationship with Grenada here. We also use chocolate coverture, both organic and non-organic, from a European manufacturer who is firmly committed to sustainable development in cocoa producing countries and condemns child trafficking and exploitative child labour. We’re pleased to take part in setting up a future for organic cocoa and organic cocoa derived employment
