With World Chocolate Day just around the corner (7 July), now is the time to indulge your senses and treat yourself to some seriously delicious (and perhaps even health-boosting) chocolate.
How about Ecuadorian dark chocolate infused with Passionfruit, Andean Rose, or Jasmine, for example? Those are just a few of the flavours in the Pacari range, which has a cacao content of 60% or higher, is organic, and demeter biodynamic, vegan, gluten-free, kosher and B Corp-certified.
Pacari, which is distributed in the UK by Fair Business Alliance based in Edinburgh, is a family-owned Ecuadorian company with a simple mission: producing the highest quality organic chocolate in the world in the most ethical and sustainable way possible.
The company is all about making the most of nature’s ingredients while protecting and defending her. Its partnerships include a collaboration with WWF Ecuador to protect the jaguar, river dolphin and tapir – all of which are native to the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest.
Pacari Chocolates are produced from ‘Tree to Bar’, with the whole production process taking place in Ecuador, a cacao bean growing country.
Pacari supports around 3,500 families and local farmers in Ecuador by working directly with them and paying them a significant premium over market prices to make sure they are fairly compensated for their products and hard work.
As if its ethical credentials weren’t enough, Pacari has won more than 200 medals since 2012 at the International Chocolate Awards and we can confirm that the chocolate tastes AMAZING.
