Case study: the 'Tree to Bar' recipe for fair chocolate

 

 

The challenge 

 

most chocolate companies are located in More Economically Developed countries (MEDCs) and produce their chocolates 

from 'Bean to Bar': they import raw cacao beans grown in developing countries to manifacture them into chocolate bars.

 

These raw cacao beans have a much lower market value than the final chocolate products. As a result, typically less than 7% of the wealth generated of a 'Bean to Bar' chocolate product remains in the countries of origin, even if farmers are paid fairly for their cacao beans.   

Pacari Chocolates

 

Pacari produces fair-trade and 100% certified organic chocolate products from  'Tree to Bar' in Ecuador. The enterprise has a simple mission: to produce the highest quality chocolate in the world in the most ethical and sustainable way possible. This strategy has paid off, as their chocolate has won over 200 International Chocolate Awards since 2012.

 

To give everyone the opportunity to enjoy these delicious, sustainable chocolate products, we proudly operate as Pacari's UK distribution center.

The solution

 

we work closely together with Pacari, a family- owned 

company which produces its chocolates from 'Tree to Bar' in Ecuador. 'Tree to Bar' means that the chocolate bars are 

produced and packaged in the country where cacao beans actually grow.

 

The 'Tree to Bar' methodology supports local economies by creating specialised job opportunities and ensures that over 50% of the wealth generated by chocolate products stays in the country of origin. As Pacari also pays their farmers fair wages, this is truly fair chocolate.
