Whether whole milk or dark chocolate

Ever seen on the back of the chocolate package wristwatch? There you can see: How much cocoa is in the chocolate and whether cocoa was used at all. 

To find out where the cocoa comes from and whether you are supporting slave-like conditions, you usually have to do a little more research.

Pleasure is close to our heart

By no means do we want to spoil your appetite for chocolate. But a little more mindfulness will benefit the cocoa farmers and you. The more we pay attention to the origin and the proportion of cocoa in the chocolate, the more enjoyment is possible. And suddenly even a bar of high-quality chocolate is equal to or more enjoyable than a whole bar.

The little sweet origin of chocolate

The chocolate company Tonychocolonely wants to self-confidently put an end to slavery on cocoa plantations worldwide. The English company promotes a transparent supply chain of cocoa beans, ensuring that child labor and low prices, which do not provide cocoa farmers with a livelihood and thus create slave-like conditions, no longer occur.

A noble goal, which is helped with the smart marketing of Tonychocolonely to more attention. The name of the company and the chocolate is intended to indicate that it sees itself as the sole fighter against the injustices in the chocolate trade. However, the issue of transparency, from the cocoa bean to the chocolate bar, has been an issue for some chocolate producers for some time.

Transparency almost always helps

Ritter Sport and other chocolate manufacturers now operate cocoa plantations themselves. Only 8 percent of the world’s chocolate is currently sold under a Fairtrade label (source: NZZ).

Unfortunately, cocoa bean cultivation in nature reserves, child labor and corruption cannot be ruled out in some countries where cocoa is grown but civil war or other conflicts are raging at the same time. Greater transparency throughout the supply chain is also an important issue for the future of chocolate.

Delicious and sustainable chocolate

GloriousMe’s favorite chocolatier, Belgian Pierre Marcolini, has been championing the cause of sustainable chocolate for years. Transparency and the preservation of biodiversity lead to double the purchase prices compared to the international market price. In return, there is unadulterated, outstanding enjoyment. Once you have tried it, you will only return to the previous chocolate in emergencies.
