About this coop:

The Grenada Chocolate Company Ltd., nestled in lush cocoa groves in Grenada's pristine rainforest, produces high quality Organic dark chocolate. We have over 150 acres of organic cocoa farms in our cooperative and operate our own cocoa fermentry, located one mile from our little factory. This assures that we perform every activity involved in the production of our chocolate, from the planting and growing of the cocoa trees to the fermenting of the fresh cocoa beans to the processing of our fine dark chocolate. We are one of the only small-scale chocolate-makers producing fine chocolate where the cocoa grows.

Short film about The Grenada Chocolate Company, a tree-to-bar organic chocolate-making cooperative on the fine cocoa-producing Caribbean island of Grenada. The original impetus and principle of our cooperative company is to revolutionize the cocoa-chocolate system that typically keeps cocoa production separate from chocolate-making and therefore takes advantage of cocoa farmers. We believe that the cocoa farmers should benefit as much as the chocolate-makers. Grenada Chocolate bars are now being shipped to UK and Holland on the Tres Hombres sailing ship, an old-fashioned, square-rigged Brigantine 32 meter ship. The Tres Hombres has no engine at all, only powered by the wind and travels the traditional trade wind route from Europe, Africa, The Caribbean, North America and back to Europe with the vision of moving cargo sustainably, pollution-free.
