    Did you know?

    Did you know that much of the cacao used in commercial products is farmed unsustainably? In an attempt to meet increasing demand, some farmers are turning to practices that can harm both the end product and our environment. Some are shifting their crops from shade into direct sunlight, while others are relying on herbicides and pesticides to keep pests at bay.

    Geography.

    Grown in Satipo, Peru.

    Hot tip.

    For a brain-boosting breakfast or afternoon snack, add a spoonful of cacao powder into your favourite smoothie.

    Loving Earth

    Can we interest you in a nutritious chocolate bar or a bowl of buckinis? Thanks to their irresistible pantry goodies — and admirable core values — this ethically-driven business has built a cult following like no other. At all costs, Loving Earth stands by their name. Take their famous chocolate, for example. The cacao has been grown by the Ashaninka community, in the remote forest at the source of the Amazon River in Peru. Even their packaging is close to nature: boxes are printed with vegetable inks on board with 97% post-consumer recycled fibre, and wrappers are made with sustainably managed plant sources, making them home compostable. Now you don’t have to feel so guilty about your guilty pleasure.
