Divine Chocolate Comes to the US

Ten Thousand Villages Toronto was where I first came across this “heavenly chocolate with a heart.”

This past Friday, Erin Gorman, CEO of Divine Chocolate USA, sent Kitty an introductory e-mail. Divine Chocolate, the world’s first farmer-owned fair trade chocolate company opened it’s Washington, DC, office on October 31.

First established in the UK in 1998, Divine Chocolate is part owned by the
farmers of Kuapa Kokoo in Ghana with additional investment from
Lutheran World Relief and Oikocredit.

The packaging is clean and I love the dark and white chocolate selections. Fair trade foodstuff is positively addictive and, from a retail perspective, always a good add-on to the other non-edible handicrafts in the store. Just like the racks of candy at your grocer’s check out but with a heart. : )

The Austin store has no immediate plans to carry Divine Chocolate (we have a selection of Equal Exchange chocolate bars) but you can buy online here.

Welcome Erin and her team at Divine Chocolate. Best wishes from Texas.
