Why we switched to direct-trade cacao


Mythical Chocolates has intentionally focused on bringing you high-quality organic foods and drinks you can trust. In service of providing products that serve both those consuming them as well as those providing the ingredients, we found it imperative to switch from distributors to a direct-trade model for our cacao nibs. 

 

Direct-trade provides greater clarity on where our beans are sourced, and that the families and communities growing cacao are receiving equitable support for the medicine they are birthing into the world. 

 

When you purchase from Mythical Chocolates, you are receiving organic cacao that has been ethically sourced using regenerative practices. This is medicine, meant to lift up your life and the lives and communities of those who grow our cacao. It’s a reflection of humanity's highest potential of stewardship to Mother Earth, our bodies, and one another.
