SOURCED WITH HARMONY
At Lait De Choco, our foundation lies in sourcing in harmony with the earth. One of our significant endeavors is offering plant-sourced alternatives to commonly used animal-derived products, promoting a more sustainable and compassionate approach. However, we recognize that this alone may not be enough, so we are continuously exploring and developing a future where we can further reduce pressure on cacao-farming by introducing alternatives and better practices.
The cacao mass and cacao butter we use in crafting our chocolate comes from a small family company committed to ethical practices. Notably, they pay their farmers 3% above the minimum price set by the 'Fair Trade' standard, going beyond the average for chocolates marked 'Fair Trade.' Moreover, they provide premium prices for cacao beans to small and medium farmers, offering markups nearly 10% higher than the international market.
Supporting various social responsibilities for their farm workers, the company demonstrates their dedication to creating positive impact and fostering a sustainable future. You can witness the tangible benefits they bring to their community by exploring their initiatives for yourself here.
