The concept of 'forest gardens' that support clean soil, healthy plants and bio-diversity, are central to our mission and vision of providing ethically sourced, sustainable cacao foods.

Made from Chocosol Traders in-house blend of the highest quality cacao, these bars are made using roasted cacao nibs, cacao butter, and simple, whole-food ingredients. Chocosol Traders don't make flavoured chocolate- they make chocolate that uses ingredients to change the mouthfeel, flavours, and experience of each unique bar. All made fresh, bean-to-bar in their Toronto kitchens, using a low-heat and low-sheer stone-grinding method to retain the nutrition and complex flavour profiles of cacao in these dark chocolate bars. Their low processing time also gives these bars a rustic, full-bodied mouth-feel and texture that has been perfected over 12 years of recipe development.
All packaged in food-grade, biodegradable packaging.
