ARE YOUR CHOCOLATE INGREDIENTS RAINFOREST ALLIANCE CERTIFIED?
At Justin’s we strive for sustainability and conscientiousness in all of our work. We are proud to source Rainforest Alliance Certified™ cocoa for our products. This organization goes to great lengths to ensure the safety and quality of the farms from where we source our cocoa. Rainforest Alliance accomplishes this by defining the criteria for suitable labor conditions, educating and training its farmers, and monitoring labor practices on farms through the certification audits and specific studies.
Additionally, our chocolate is organic, which prohibits the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers, thus increasing soil biodiversity.
