Fair Trade Certified OCHO Candy

Here at OCHO Candy we believe in saying what we mean and making what we say. Since the beginning we have been using Fair Trade chocolate to make our delicious candy bars, and now we are excited to announce our official partnership with Fair Trade Certified. As a company, we have a growing commitment to raising the bar in social responsibility and environmental sustainability. Now you can be a part of that commitment while keeping your taste buds happy with our fair trade chocolate!”

What is Fair Trade?

Fair Trade USA is a nonprofit organization and the leading certifier of fair trade products in North America ranging from seafood to apparel to produce, offering certification for growers around the world. Its trusted Fair Trade Certified seal on a product signifies that it was made according to rigorous fair trade standards that promote sustainable livelihoods and transparent supply chains.

When you choose Fair Trade Certified OCHO chocolate, you’re voting with your dollar— supporting income sustainability, worker empowerment, community development and environmental stewardship. Through the unique Fair Trade Community Development Fund, workers can address local needs so that their families and children can thrive for generations to come.

In addition to being fair trade, our products are all organic, always Non-GMO, certified gluten-free and sometimes vegan. You can see any given chocolate’s certifications by looking for the icons below:
