Loving Earth, an Ethical Approach to Chocolate
Author: F&F Date Posted:26 April 2017
Loving Earth is new to Flora & Fauna and we are thrilled to offer this ethical, fair trade brand focused on linking growers with consumers and offering truly fair trade products that are innovative and tasty.
Loving Earth has been around for ten years now and was started by a couple inspired by Mexico and three central principles of being Healthy, Sustainable and Fair, the foundation of everything that Loving Earth do.
Not only do they offer chocolate in lots of delicious flavours but they also turn the chocolate industry on its head by being transparent in where their ingredients come from, offering a beautiful range of vegan chocolate which is palm oil free, gluten free, cruelty free and they work closely with their growers and are very transparent about it. Refreshing!
Loving Earth’s vision is to take the manufacturing of their products back to the indigenous communities who grow and process the raw materials. They work from Australia to Peru, Ecuador and beyond.
Cacao is produced in Peru. The indigenous Ashaninka people of the Rio Ene region in Satipo, Peru harvest the wild criollo cacao from their traditional forest land in a remote part of the Amazon.
In a very remote part of Australia the Nyul Nyul harvest Gubinge.
Raw Cashews are harvested from Indonesia and more.
