Its all about chocolate and cocoa with a conscience.

Chocolate Shouldn’t Be Cheap – Eater

We’re used to paying about $1 for a bar of chocolate. But that price undercuts the farmer, the flavor, and the finesse that it takes to make good chocolate. To understand why many craft chocolate makers have adopted the direct-trade model — and higher prices — let’s look at how Big Chocolate works with farmers.

De waarde van goedkope chocolade 

De prijs van een reep chocolade is, ook met Fairtrade, dermate laag, dat veel, vooral Afrikaanse boeren, geen menswaardig leven kunnen leiden.

🙌🏼❤️Raw cacao contains the highest concentration of anti-oxidants of any food in the WORLD.
Anti-oxidants help neutralize free radicals-which is a major cause of many degenerative diseases, cancer tumors, heart disease, and premature aging.
Raw cacao also contains the highest concentration of magnesium of any food in the world. 80% of Americans are deficient in MAGNESIUM- and as a result many are plagued with heart disease, joint problems, diabetes, and hypertension.

The mass production of chocolate includes pulverizing and roasting the beans, which destroys most of the flavanols that give your body the anti-oxidant boost it needs! This is why it’s important to buy QUALITY #cacao.
Toss a handful of cacao nibs or powder in your smoothies-or buy a delicious bar and nibble on it daily.
