Slow-roasted hazelnuts ground directly into a batch of Ugandan cacao from Semuliki Forest; finished with alder salt. This craft chocolate bar is vegan, gluten-free, and soy-free.
Made from fairtrade and organic ingredients
The cacao used in this bar was ethically sourced from Semuliki Forest in Uganda via Uncommon Cacao. We pay the farmers above fairtrade prices in an effort to adequately compensate farmers’ labour, support local infrastructure, and encourage sustainable growth.
Bundibugyo, Western Uganda, Semuliki Forest cacao is grown by 1,002 organic smallholder farmers in the region, 52% of whom are women. Latitude Trade Co processes and exports this cacao, and has organized 6 rural collection points for farmers to access and sell fresh cacao weekly into the network and receive cash at the point of sale.
