The United Students for Fair Trade Convergence took place in Seattle a couple weeks ago. Theo Chocolate was very proud to host many of the producers here at the factory for a special tour. The participants were here from as far away as Uganda, Mexico, Nicaragua and one of our very own suppliers, Juanita Baltodano Vilchez, was here from Costa Rica. With the help of multiple translators we had a very spirited conversation about the complex processes of getting raw materials from the farm to the grocery store shelves and consumers. I think everyone emerged from the discussion with heightened respect for all members of the supply chain. You can read more about Juanita & Theo Chocolate on the Whole Foods blog.
